jump label: Fix deadlock b/w jump_label_mutex vs. text_mutex
register_kprobe() downs the 'text_mutex' and then calls jump_label_text_reserved(), which downs the 'jump_label_mutex'. However, the jump label code takes those mutexes in the reverse order. Fix by requiring the caller of jump_label_text_reserved() to do the jump label locking via the newly added: jump_label_lock(), jump_label_unlock(). Currently, kprobes is the only user of jump_label_text_reserved().
