Ok. So in both cases, you need both the call site address and the tramp
address, right? We could add a 'tramp' pointer to the key struct -- I
assume that's what you mean?

And also change

void arch_static_call_transform(unsigned long insn, void *dest)


void arch_static_call_transform(void *call_site, void *tramp, void *dest)
