Subject: [PATCH] jump_label: Fix usage in module __init

Final patch looks like this.

Subject: jump_label: Fix usage in module __init
From: Peter Zijlstra <>
Date: Wed Dec 16 12:21:36 CET 2020

When the static_key is part of the module, and the module calls
static_key_inc/enable() from it's __init section *AND* has a
static_branch_*() user in that very same __init section, things go

If the static_key lives outside the module, jump_label_add_module()
would append this module's sites to the key and jump_label_update()
would take the static_key_linked() branch and all would be fine.

If all the sites are outside of __init, then everything will be fine

However, when all is aligned just as described above,
jump_label_update() calls __jump_label_update(.init = false) and we'll
not update sites in __init text.

Fixes: 19483677684b ("jump_label: Annotate entries that operate on __init code earlier")
