Yup. Will change.

I didn't look that hard at this. Just kept the same because the
function I was replacing was also __visible.

But it looks like this commit:

80a3e3949b8f ("x86/extable: Mark exception handler functions visible")

shouldn't have touched this function. This one is only called from C code,
not from assembler like the others.

Will drop the __visible (and note in commit comment)

Thanks
