How page table entry invalidations communicated between processes?
I hava a concern on page fault handling in operating systems. Say we have two processes A and B running. At some point, a memory access from A causes a page fault. So the OS handles the trap and gets the requested page to the memory and store it in a page frame Y and updates the page table of the process A. But provided that the process B's page table already has a mapping to the page frame Y, how would the process B identifies that the particular page table entry is invalid ?
The operating system has to keep track of which page frames are mapped. Typically, there will be a list of unmapped page frames that would be used to service the request. The operating system is not going to simply grab a page frame mapped to one process, then remap it to another process without first invaliding the first page mapping (unless the page frame is to be shared by both processes).
