Right, I've already verified this on practice... I'm mmaping on open handler 
for now just for testing the mmap, but I'll change it to the ioctl mmap 

It seems to work. I mapped high_memory and could read and modify it from user 
space. The memory values mantained betweens the many open calls. I read, 
printed the values and increment them by one. On next time, the value shown 
was incremented... All seems perfect but I still didn't test with real 
acquire code... When I do so, I'll let you know.

I still need to test the vmaops. I think I'll test them tomorrow. I need to 
begin writing an article that my advisor asked me to. I need to finish it 
until march, 10.
