Subject[PATCH v3 4/6] memory: memory notifier error injection module
Date
This provides the ability to inject artifical errors to memory hotplug
notifier chain callbacks. It is controlled through debugfs interface
under /sys/kernel/debug/memory-notifier-error-inject/

Each of the files in the directory represents an event which can be failed
and contains the error code. If the notifier call chain should be failed
with some events notified, write the error code to the files.

Example: Inject memory hotplug offline error (-12 == -ENOMEM)

# cd /sys/kernel/debug/memory-notifier-error-inject
# echo -12 > MEM_GOING_OFFLINE
# echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryXXX/state
bash: echo: write error: Cannot allocate memory

* v3
- rewrite to be kernel modules instead of initializing at late_initcall()s
- notifier priority can be specified as a module parameter
