Subject: [PATCH 11/17] x86/jump-label: remove support for custom poker

From: Nadav Amit <namit@...are.com>

There are only two types of poking: early and breakpoint based. The use
of a function pointer to perform poking complicates the code and is
probably inefficient due to the use of indirect branches.
