So for instance, if you are a normal user, but are in the kmem group
(gid=15), it is my assumption that you can still utilize this
technique even though you are not root.  However, Ben, you are the

methods of kernel memory segmentation for Linux driver code.  Ie, what
does the future hold in these respects...
