I thought about making it per cpu, but I concluded that since it is an
asynchronous tag fault it wasn't necessary.

But thinking at it from the statistical point of view what you are saying is
completely right, because we might end up in scenario in which we report the
fault on multiple cores when it happens on one or in a scenario in which we do
not report the potential fault at all.

I am going to update my code accordingly in the next version.
