Extracting the starting address of the arena_run_t from the mapping information present in arena_chunk_t for each page

Even if I find out the page's offset how do I find the address of arena_run_t, since I just know the mapping information for every page which is present in arena_chunk_t.

As currently implemented, the arena_run_t data structure is embedded at offset 0 within the run itself, so as long as you know the page's offset from the beginning of the run (which is recorded in the chunk's page map), you can directly compute the (arena_run_t *).
