I'm just reading the patch:

... The function_nocfi macro always returns the address of the
+ * actual function instead.
+ */
+#define function_nocfi(x) ({                                           \
+       void *addr;                                                     \
+       asm("leaq " __stringify(x) "(%%rip), %0\n\t" : "=r" (addr));    \
+       addr;

so it does a rip-relative load into a reg which ends up with the function
address.
