Page faults and threads

Can anyone tell me: when a thread hits a page fault in a multithread program on FreeBSD, is the entire program stopped waiting for the page to be loaded/made ready or just the one thread?
Has this changed in recent versions with the changes to the scheduler?
And, if you know, do other Open-Source OS's do the same thing, or are they all different?
