The entire expression is
info.len = snprintf(,
sizeof(, "%lx-%lx",
vma->vm_start, vma->vm_end);
and we have
* address of array field in local structure.
* constant
* string literal
* two longs fetched from *vma, that being done under ->mmap_sem
* call of snprintf
* store into a field of local structure.
The only ways to get use-after-free in that would be to have *vma freed
under you or have the same happen to your stack frame.

Could you dump the relevant part of vmlinux objdump, rather than whatever
you've used on base.o? Having relocations resolved makes it much easier
to figure out... Or just dump that vmlinux on anonftp somewhere...
