Userland memory layout can be inspected by looking into /proc/self/maps.

I am wondering if there is a similar facility allowing to inspect runtime kernel memory layout?

    From inside the kernel, you mean? Or are you asking how to use a debugger with the kernel? Note that programming is off-topic here. You can ask programming questions on Stack Overflow, but you'll need to be clearer. Aug 7, 2015 at 22:09
  • Have you looked at the dmesg output shortly after a boot? It should show you some details.
