So as I understand it, there are basically three options:
0. don't use a static branch in the RNG code
1. use a static branch but don't patch it extremely early
2. fix all the arch code so that it is safe to patch static branches
extremely early.

We have been digging into the ARM code yesterday, and identified that
RISC-V needs to be fixed as well. In fact, every arch that calls
early_init_dt_scan() from setup_arch() will need to be vetted to
ensure that jump label patching is possible this early.

Jason already proposed an implementation of 1) here

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20220607100210.683136-1-Jason@zx2c4.com/

which seems to me to be the most suitable approach by far, given that
it removes the need to fiddle with very early boot code on many
different architectures. That would also allow the arm64 of /this/
patch to be reverted from mainline.
