Since we report only the virtual address of the fault, this will make difficulties
for task monitoring the address space of some other task. Like this:

Let's assume a task creates a userfaultfd, activates one, registers several VMAs
in it and then sends the ufd descriptor to other task. If later the first task will
remap those VMAs and will start touching pages, the monitor will start receiving
fault addresses using which it will not be able to guess the exact vma the
requests come from.

Thanks,
Pavel
