Hi Alexei,

Based on Plumber's note [1], it sounds that the use case is tied to the BPF
tracing where a call tp find_vma() call will be made on a process's context
to fetch user space's symbols.

Am I right ?
Is the find_vma() call made in the context of the process owning the mm
struct ?

Thanks,
Laurent.
