Good find, thanks Peter.

As we discussed on IRC, we'll need to fix this from within the int3
exception handler by faking the call: putting a fake return address on
the stack (pointing to right after the call) and setting regs->ip to the
called function.

And for the out-of-line case we can just jump straight to the function,
so the function itself will be the text_poke_bp() "handler".

So the static_call_bp_handler() trampoline will go away.
