Yes, the "jump_leabel.h" already include "reg.h" implicitly. 
   from arch/powerpc/include/asm/cache.h:6:0,
   from include/linux/cache.h:5,
   from include/linux/printk.h:8,
   from include/linux/kernel.h:14,
   from include/asm-generic/bug.h:13,
   from arch/powerpc/include/asm/bug.h:127,
   from include/linux/bug.h:4,
   from include/linux/jump_label.h:81,

So including "jump_label.h" from "reg.h" will cause a recursive header
inclusion problem.
