SubjectRe: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff8800cf669000
From
It turns out I can not read that page in a kernel module at all. A
simple read of that page will result in an oops as well. I have
checked the flags of this page with others. They are almost the same.
Any suggestions about why this happens or how to know whether a page
can be read or not are really welcome. Thanks.

my module to print the content of a single page to dmesg:
#include <linux/module.h> /* We're building a module */
#include <linux/kernel.h> /* We're doing kernel work */
#include <linux/proc_fs.h> /* because we use proc fs */
#include <asm/uaccess.h> /* for copy_from_user */
#include <linux/mm.h> /* for page_address and kmap */
#include <linux/highmem.h>
