Parent article: vmsplice(): the making of a local root exploit

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.

Acutally you're right.

It's a trick to compute the addresses of the fake "struct page" structures on both 32 and 64
bits platforms.

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.
