As previously stated, I think poking at a process's address space is anWhy not reserve an address space range for this, somewhere near the top
of memory? It doesn't have to be populated if it isn't used.
Also, if its fixed size you're imposing artificial limits on the number
of possible probes.
btw, an alternative is to require the caller to provide the address
space for this. If the caller is in another process, we need to allow
it to play with the target's address space (i.e. mmap_process()). I
don't think uprobes justifies this by itself, but mmap_process() can be
very useful for sandboxing with seccomp.
