Thank you for reporting, here, I also have a result
tested on KVM@x86-64.

Most of them can be fixed just by adding __kprobes.
Some of them which are already in the another section, kprobes
should check the symbols are in the section.

Thank you for helping me to find it!

Great! I've found another trivial bugs, so I'll fix those on it.

Thank you,
