It looks like you are trying to memory-map a pointer that
you expect to de-reference in user space. Perhaps you can
tell us what it is that you are trying to do. You need
to use copy/to/from_user to copy things from or to the kernel.

Attempts to dereference kernel data will fail because the
segments for kernel data or code are not the same as user
data or code.
