Subject: [PATCH v10 1/6] jump_label: Provide CONFIG-driven build state defaults

As shown in jump_label.h[1], choosing the initial state of static
branches changes the assembly layout. If the condition is expected to
be likely it's inline, and if unlikely it is out of line via a jump. A
few places in the kernel use (or could be using) a CONFIG to choose the
default state, which would give a small performance benefit to their
compile-time declared default. Provide the infrastructure to do this.
