Yes ;)

"Known" is very limited. Even in the simplest case (like your test-case
from from 0/13), you simply can't know the address of "int glob" if you
compile it with "-pie -fPIC".

As for other binaries (say libc) the problem is even worse, and
randomize_va_space adds even more pain.

But in any case, I strongly believe that it doesn't make any sense to
rely on tu->inode in get_user_vaddr().
