(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
I don't know if the exploit was supposed to work as a 64bit binary (I crashed my machine when
testing one version of it), but that code doesn't translate to "NULL" on 64bit systems.
It's far from complete

Acutally you're right.
It's a trick to compute the addresses of the fake "struct page" structures on both 32 and 64
It should work on 64 bits platforms. I don't know why it doesn't in your case though but it's
just a matter of tuning some values in the exploit code probably.
