[PATCH v13 02/18] x86: initialize static branching early




static branching is useful to hot-patch branches that are used in hot
path, but are infrequently changed.

x86 clock framework is one example that uses static branches to setup
the best clock during boot and never change it again.

Since we plan to enable clock early, we need static branching
functionality early as well.

static branching requires patching nop instructions, thus, we need
arch_init_ideal_nops() to be called prior to jump_label_init()

Here we do all the necessary steps to call arch_init_ideal_nops
after early_cpu_init().
