For the vmlinux, right?

To be precise, it should be "If there's no map after the kernel map".
It seems vmlinux adds more maps after the kernel map for those .head,
.init and .exit text sections.

I guess it was overwritten by the machine__set_kernel_mmap() then.

To be sure, could you please show me the /proc/kallsymb output around
the missing symbols (do_undefinstr, ...)?

The missing symbols are in the missing maps. They should be in the
kernel maps for the kallsyms case IMHO. Could you please run the test
with below patch?

Thanks,
