Maybe you're looking for arch/x86/mm/fault.c:do_page_fault(). But,
do_page_fault is tagged with __kprobes, so maybe you can't use this
function with kprobe. You need to find some other solutions. perf
tools has an option for page fault counting, see whether it satisfies
your need. Use 'perf list' to see all the events.
