+This is a library for handling page faults in user mode. A page fault occurs
+when a program tries to access to a region of memory that is currently not
+available. Catching and handling a page fault is a useful technique for
+implementing:
+
+ - pageable virtual memory,
+ - memory-mapped access to persistent databases,
+ - generational garbage collectors,
+ - stack overflow handlers,
+ - distributed shared memory,
