Page table walk manually


Are the addresses returned by /proc/pid/maps are pointers to vm_area_struct?

If not please let me know how to find pointers to vm_area_struct of a running process WITHOUT writing code.

I'll use the vm pointers to find the gdt, pdt, pt, etc to do a manual walk of page tables for a running process.

Many thanks!
