SubjectINVLPG Instruction

When a process has a page fault and Linux swaps out a page ( no more
free page ) from another process and give it to the page-faulting
process. Typically a INVLPG is used to invalidate entries in the TLB.
I would like to know whether INVLPG is global ( i.e. across all cores
)? How does the process which Linux stole the page from get informed (
how is its tlb invalidated) ?
