I printed the address within rseq_init (), which happened to be invoked
by the linker startup waaaay too early. I followed your advice and moved
the rseq_init () invocation after linker re-relocation:

      We do these now so that no calls are made after rtld re-relocation
      which might be resolved to different functions than we expect.

It works fine now!

Thanks!
