The logic in my previous patch was bogus. Here is an updated version (untested):

diff --git a/arch/arm/include/asm/jump_label.h b/arch/arm/include/asm/jump_label.h
index e12d7d096fc0..7c35f57b72c5 100644

return true;
}

+/*

static __always_inline bool arch_static_branch_jump(struct static_key *key, bool branch)
{
asm_volatile_goto("1:\n\t"

".popsection\n\t"
: : "i" (&((char *)key)[branch]) : : l_yes);

Thanks,
Mathieu
