Yes, it patches (alternates, jump_labels, mcount etc.), but it doesn't
swap or move code pages. At least so far.
Try using modules (though that's different - the virtual addresses will
change too). Or debugging a mixed kernel/user workload.
If you need to break at such locations, there are still hardware
breakpoints, though only 4.
