With KASLR, you can probe the kernel mapped and unmapped
addresses with side channels like TLB and infer the kernel mapping
offsets much more easily, as kernel is in the same address
space as the attack process. It is a lot harder to do
such probing from another process that doesn't share the
same page tables.
