There are two config variables. CONFIG_HAVE_LIVEPATCH is set by those 
architectures for which livepatching implementation exists.

CONFIG_LIVEPATCH is the actual config option turning the support in kernel 

What you are seeing is that if you have kernel configuration that has 
livepatching (CONFIG_LIVEPATCH) turned off, the sample module doesn't 
compile for it either. I'd say it's not unexpected behavior.
