I am confused:
In my patch, if kptr_restrict == 2 it prints NULL, which kptr_restrict 
being 0 or 1 it prints the address.

In your comment if kptr_restrict == 2 it prints the address, which 
kptr_restrict being 0 or 1 it prints NULL.

Looking into Documentation/sysctl/kernel.txt:
  When kptr_restrict is set to (2), kernel pointers printed using
  %pK will be replaced with 0's regardless of privileges.

With my patch, setting kptr_restrict to 0 or 1
prints the real kernel address (format %px, unmodified address
according to Documentation/printk-formats.txt).

I have tested this on s390 (which is the only arch using file
/sys/module/<XXX>/sections/.text) in the perf tool.

root@s8360047 ~]# sysctl  kernel.kptr_restrict
kernel.kptr_restrict = 0
[root@s8360047 ~]# cat /proc/modules | egrep '^qeth_l2'
qeth_l2 102400 1 - Live 0x000003ff8034d000
[root@s8360047 ~]# cat /sys/module/qeth_l2/sections/.text 
0x000003ff8034da68
[root@s8360047 ~]# sysctl  -w kernel.kptr_restrict=2
kernel.kptr_restrict = 2
[root@s8360047 ~]# cat /proc/modules | egrep '^qeth_l2'
qeth_l2 102400 1 - Live 0x0000000000000000
[root@s8360047 ~]# cat /sys/module/qeth_l2/sections/.text 
0x0000000000000000
[root@s8360047 ~]# uname -a

Hope this helps.
