When a page fault occurs, the process requesting the page must block while waiting for the page to be brought from disk into physical memory.

When a page fault occurs, the process requesting the page must block while waiting for the page to be brought from disk into physical memory. Assume there exists a process with five user-level threads where the mapping of user threads to kernel threads is many:one. If one user thread incurs a page fault while accessing its stack, would the other user threads belonging to the same process also be affected by the page fault (i.e., would they also have to wait for the faulting page to be brought into memory?) Explain. How many bits are required in the logical address?
