Sorry I'm coming with a commit post release, but looking at that patch function I made made me think about the maths that were being done.
And this a correction of them.
Better than leaving it uncorrected.
A bit shall never be set on a THUMB -> ARM BLX op, and this bit was what messed with me the first time i made this code but didn't knew about it. Hence now that added & ~(1<<16).
So, the op jump distance math was incorrect because i never fixed that bit, but instead changed the maths of the op distance, originally.
Old code was basically doing (Destination_offset - blx_op_offset+4) / 2 instead of +2, which worked as mentioned on commit message, by sheer luck of offsets.
But now this new code is correct.

Properly create BLX instruction
Rethinked and revised this function.
This previous one worked by "accident".
More a sheer luck of offsets on current firmware (as of writing)
But now, this is more mathematically correct way of creating a
THUMB -> ARM BLX instruction.
Also setting the new op in a set of 2 u16,
because patching code is in thumb.
