this patch's advertised "If there's no module after the kernel map, the
end address will be ~0ULL." doesn't seem to be working: the value it
gets for 'end' is 0xffff200008080000.

I even hardcoded 'end' variable to the value for '_end' in kallsyms
prior to the machine__set_kernel_mmap() call, and test 1 still fails.

The problem is earlier on in the code, somewhere.

I've moved to working on the updated perf/urgent. Reverting the
original patch doesn't make test 1 resume succeeding anymore.

Pointers appreciated.

Kim
