GDB does not stop at assembly code address

Here's the output:

(gdb) b startup_32
Breakpoint 1 at 0xc1000000: file arch/x86/kernel/head_32.S, line 97.
(gdb) print startup_32
$1 = {<text variable, no debug info>} 0xc1000000 <startup_32>
(gdb) info breakpoints
Num     Type           Disp Enb Address    What
1       breakpoint     keep y   0xc1000000 arch/x86/kernel/head_32.S:97

(gdb) b start_kernel
Breakpoint 1 at 0xc1be3755: file init/main.c, line 480.
(gdb) print start_kernel
$1 = {void (void)} 0xc1be3755 <start_kernel>
(gdb) info breakpoints
Num     Type           Disp Enb Address    What
1       breakpoint     keep y   0xc1be3755 in start_kernel at init/main.c:480

I guess the "no debug info" would be the explanation, but why is that? The address is listed as a FUNC in readelf -Ws vmlinux, thus it should be correct. What do I have to do?

What is startup_32 address and where does GDB set breakpoint?
You can do "print startup_32" and "info breakpoints" to get the answer
of two questions above.
