Sorry about that then, I must have missed the reboot.

I don't have many ideas about what to try next. One idea is to test if the
patching works without JtR. This would mean setting up a minimal host-side
environment that passes the correct buffers and compares the output to the
required results. My other idea would be to change the tests in the format
to check for a single value (0xaaaaaaaa), then make a kernel that does
something different and patch it with this simple assembly code.

I'll try these, but if anybody has a better idea please let me know.
