Below is my investigation result before, FYI.
the first bad commit (v4.18 ~ v4.19):
d83212d5dd67 kallsyms, x86: Export addresses of PTI entry trampolines
revert this commit on 4.19.0, it works.
the first good commit again (v4.19 ~ v4.20):
bf904d2762ee x86/pti/64: Remove the SYSCALL64 entry trampoline
backported this commit as well as the related commit 98f05b5138f0 on
v4.19.24, it works.

And I've tested your fix on v4.19.24, it also works.
