There is no apparent reason not to use text_poke_early() while we are
during early-init and we do not patch code that might be on the stack
(i.e., we'll return to the middle of the patched code). This appears to
be the case of jump-labels, so do so.

This is required for the next patches that would set a temporary mm for
patching, which is initialized after some static-keys are
enabled/disabled.
