Sorry for not being precise - I tested with solution (3.).
Later I added the diff I used as mentioned in your above comment.

See [1]:

I cannot say much to older versions of GCC and/or LLVM/Clang if
removing "__force_order" works fine.

Another (4.) solution:
Sami tried successfully by adding "__weak" declaration with
CONFIG_LKDTM=m (see [2]).
I am OK if this works, too.

Please, see my attachments.
