comment Why does Linux on sparc64 architecture use 32-bit pointers in user-space and 64-bit pointers in kernel-space?
You are right...I rephrased the question and changed the tags.

"It’s interesting to note that the SPARC 64 architecture runs with a 32-bit user space, so pointers are 32 bits wide there, even though they are 64 bits wide in kernel space." -- I mistakenly mentioned x86_64 instead of SPARC.

comment Memory Management: Faulting virtual addresses
Ironically, the answer is there in the same sentence from which I picked up the quote. "If the faulting virtual address is invalid this means that the process has attempted to access a virtual address that it should not have." That explains what the author really means by a 'faulting virtual address'.
