Admittedly, these would be hard to implement fully in the current Wine
userspace server I think (they can map a section handle into _another_
process's VM space). However, it's something I can do in kernel space
reasonably easily.

And then there's NtQueryVirtualMemory. This can return a handle to the backing
section (assuming I'm recalling this correctly) in some other process.

Actually, I see that you do maintain a view list in the client as well as the
module list and section lists in the server. What I was thinking of was just
consolidating the three into a single view list and a single section list in
the server.

In effect, Wine'd still have the module list, it's just that there'd be
non-modules in the list too.

This would mean that the debugger could query from the server what Windows VM
mappings should be expected.

And, of course, it'd make writing the kernel module slightly easier:-)
