    Hello Professor:
    Haven't contact with you for a long time, I hope everything about you is fine
    I 've got a question about the use of Vmadump when checkpointing and restarting. 
    when checkpointing a process, Vmadump help to dump the virtual address space of the process to the file on the disk, But before we restart the process, The dumped vitual address space now maybe mapped for other use, Maybe a read-only file, or other devices or for other use. I mean that vm area is not avaliable or only partially available for restoring. Can this scene happen?  if yes, How can Vmadump restore the process address space
