It's the same pattern as before. Create a SYSTEM_INFO instance, which
allocates the block of memory for the information, and pass
GetSystemInfo a pointer. For example:

    kernel32 = ctypes.WinDLL('kernel32', use_last_error=True)
    kernel32.GetSystemInfo.restype = None
    kernel32.GetSystemInfo.argtypes = (LPSYSTEM_INFO,)

    sysinfo = SYSTEM_INFO()

Here are the minimum and maximum addresses for a 64-bit process,
formatted in hexadecimal:

    >>> hex(sysinfo.lpMinimumApplicationAddress)
    >>> hex(sysinfo.lpMaximumApplicationAddress)
