How to define addresses of .bss from kernel module?
Hi. I have two nontrivial question.
1. I want to find address of the end of .bss segment or its size from kernel module. When I wanted to find addresses of data segment, I use struct task_struct ( current->mm->end_data and current->mm->strart_data ). Does anybody knows how to learn such addresses for .bss? And is it true, that the begining of .bss segment is end of data segment (mm->end_data)?
2. I recently knew, that each shared library have own data segment and own .bss. For example:
# cat /proc/1/maps look at init

How I can to learn addresses for them from kernel module? Which structures in kernel contain this information? I didn`t find this information in google, and I suspect that it`s very hard. I would appreciate any help.
