there is no such concept as "heap arena" visible to user
code, so almost surely you don't "need a pointer to the
base address" of it.

try to describe what exactly you want to do (not in terms
of libc internals, but in terms that make sense for user

(do you want to get all memory mappings? -> try /proc/self/maps)
(do you want to track malloc behaviour? -> try malloc interposition)
