Subject[PATCH 0/3] jump_label: get rid of NOP patching where possible
Date
The only architecture that actually needs to convert compiler generated
jump label NOP encodings into something else at runtime is MIPS, because
the assembler cannot be trusted to emit a sequence that can be safely
patched into a branch instruction.

All other architectures either do nothing with jump label NOPs at load
time, or patch a perfectly good NOP into a different one, or into the same
one - none of this seems very useful, so let's get rid of it where we
can.
