[Bug libdw/22452] Failed to obtain CFI data for a OP_call_frame_CFA when looking for func entrypoc in an s390 kernel module

Don't worry, we have the split .ko/.debug files, it should in theory also work
(or show the same bug) with that.

So, if you could provide the output of eu-readelf --relocs paes_s390.ko (on
your combined paes_s390.ko containing both code and debug) that would be

If there are relocations in the .rela.eh_frame section that aren't "simple" as
defined in s390_reloc_simple_type (backends/backends/s390_symbol.c) that might
be a hint.

Also if you could trick you kernel build to generate CFI in .debug_frame
instead of .eh_frame like other arches seem to do, that would make a good
