I would make an effort to convey a maximum amount of content in a
minimal amount of words. :)

Page faults happen on CPUs but they happen on VMAs that could be bound
to a CDM node. We allocate based on the VMA policy first, the fall back
to the default policy which is based on the CPU doing the fault if the
VMA doesn't have a specific policy.
