Unfortunately that is a totally separate issue - the in-kernel offset
can be trivially calculated. But we still need to figure out a way to
pass it on to userspace. The current patchset does that by abusing
the flags, which doesn't really work as the flags are way too small.
So we somewhere need to have an address to do the put_user to.
