If you consider my statement to relate to your "And wtf wasn't it
tested with modules?" it might convince you that my testing included
modules, too.

Assuming that the fix I send to Nick solves his problem, this problem
only affects the last function before and first function after the .idx
section and that only in approx. one out of two cases. (And additionally
for me the unwinder isn't used on modprobe.) So I still think my testing
was OK.

I don't think that it makes sense to continue arguing here. If you have
to name someone to Linus who is responsible for this regression, feel
free to say my name. (Ah, I see he's on Cc: ...)
