Vincent's patch commented on, and worked around, a bug toggling
static_branch's, when a 2nd PRINTK-ish flag was added.  The bug
results in a premature static_branch_disable when the 1st of 2 flags
was disabled.

The cited commit computed newflags, but then in the JUMP_LABEL block,
did not use that result, but used just one of the terms in it.  Using
newflags instead made the code work properly.

This is Vincents test-case, reduced.  It needs the 2nd flag to work
properly, but it's explanatory here.

pt_test() {
    echo 5 > /sys/module/dynamic_debug/verbose

    site="module tcp" # just one callsite
    echo " $site =_ " > /proc/dynamic_debug/control # clear it

    # A B ~A ~B
    for flg in +T +p "-T #broke here" -p; do
	echo " $site $flg " > /proc/dynamic_debug/control

    # A B ~B ~A
    for flg in +T +p "-p #broke here" -T; do
	echo " $site $flg " > /proc/dynamic_debug/control

Fixes: 84da83a6ffc0 dyndbg: combine flags & mask into a struct, simplify with it
