Why add the above update to the handler in this function? It looks
strange in this patch. Then I thought, "hmm, maybe it has a reason to
be here in other patches". Then I see in patch 7, you *REMOVE* these
awkward lines from this function! Let's not move them here to begin
with.

We then don't even need to pass in "handler". And perhaps rename it to
just "text_poke_bp_add_int3()"?
