That reads wrong; 'if we cannot queue, continue'

Hurmph...

	for_each_whatever(entry, stop, key) {
		if (!jump_label_can_update(entry, init))
			continue;

		if (!arch_jump_label_transform_queue(entry)) {
			/* queue full, flush */
			arch_jump_label_transform_apply();
			BUG_ON(!arch_jump_label_transform_queue(entry));
		}
	}
	arch_jump_label_transform_apply();

Also, see next patch.
