I'm not sure how portable it is using __asm__("new.name"), but it seems
to work with versions of GCC that I've tried.  Other tools like
kpatch-build can manipulate such symbols directly, but for anything that
needs to feed the C compiler, some kind of workaround is needed to
create klp-relocations for them.

FWIW, the trick works through the KLP_SYMPOS macro annotations as well,
for example:

  void pfn_valid_part_0(void) __asm__("pfn_valid.part.0");
  KLP_MODULE_RELOC(kvm) kvm_main_relocs[] = {
  	KLP_SYMPOS(pfn_valid_part_0, 0),
  };
