IIUC, to use this, you'd have to load the module first, manually look up
the module function's address, and _then_ build the patch for the
running system. And the resulting patch wouldn't work on other systems.

Do you have concrete plans to use it this way?

Just trying to understand if this is needed for a real world usage
scenario.
