there is no one way to get a virtual address to pass in here - if you
are aware of some suitable values just pass them directly. What I have
done in the past in a multi-process system, is to run the primary
normaly, and then when running the failing secondary turn up the log
level so I can see the mapped addresses before it fails. Then I record
the starting address that the secondary uses, and re-run the primary
passing that in as the base-virtaddr hint.
