I couldn't see what was causing this, but of course it's just that
mmap_min_addr is not exported, and in that config LKDTM is a module.

I always build it in which is why I didn't notice.

I'm not sure we want to EXPORT_SYMBOL mmap_min_addr just for this test
do we? I could change the test to use mmap_min_addr if LKDTM is
built-in, and otherwise just map at zero. Dunno.
