SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/4] Static calls

Where did this end up BTW?

I know that there's controversy about the
CONFIG_HAVE_STATIC_CALL_OPTIMIZED option, but I don't think the
CONFIG_HAVE_STATIC_CALL_UNOPTIMIZED version was controversial. From the
v1 patch 0 description:

There are three separate implementations, depending on what the arch
supports:

1) CONFIG_HAVE_STATIC_CALL_OPTIMIZED: patched call sites - requires
objtool and a small amount of arch code

2) CONFIG_HAVE_STATIC_CALL_UNOPTIMIZED: patched trampolines - requires
a small amount of arch code

3) If no arch support, fall back to regular function pointers

My benchmarks showed the best improvements with the
STATIC_CALL_OPTIMIZED, but it still showed improvement with the
UNOPTIMIZED version as well. Can we at least apply 2 and 3 from the
above (which happen to be the first part of the patch set. 1 comes in
at the end).

I would also just call it CONFIG_STATIC_CALL. If we every agree on the
optimized version, then we can call it CONFIG_STATIC_CALL_OPTIMIZED.
Have an option called UNOPTIMIZED just seems wrong.
