Ok, was this using the module .ko file or /proc/kcore? You forgot to
cut'n'paste the first line on the screen.

Also, how did you use gdb?

perf uses objdump to do the disassembly, and depending on how it is used
(live system, post processing on a different machine, permissions) it
may use different files to do the disassembly.

Please provide more detailed information on the exact command line
arguments and usage scenario.
