Hi, Petr.

Thanks for reviewing my patches.

Yes, You are right that the function address is changable on different
system.

The purpose to add these patches is to avoid the case that function name
is larger enough to exceed 128.

Meanwhile I think we can not predict the behavior what user want to do.

Thanks
