I think "range registered" Alejandro suggested is a bit more natural,
just because that's the way you'd say it if we were slightly more
verbose:

"When a kernel-originated fault was triggered on the range [that was
previously] registered with this userfaultfd, ..."

Of course leaving out "that was previously" is fine, but I think the
ordering "range registered" remains more natural.

Another alternative I find equally natural which keeps the existing
ordering might be something like:

"... on the userfaultfd-registered range ..."
