I think you can define one default fail_attr for boot time configuration
and copy it to per-host fail_attr in mmc_add_host_debugfs().

/* pseudo-code */

static DECLARE_FAULT_ATTR(default_mmc_fail_attr);

static int __init setup_fail_mmc_request(char *str)
return setup_fault_attr(&default_mmc_fail_attr, str);
__setup("fail_mmc_request=", setup_fail_mmc_request);


void mmc_add_host_debugfs(struct mmc_host *host)

host->fail_attr = default_mmc_fail_attr;
if (!debugfs_create_fault_attr("fail_mmc_request",
root, &host->fail_attr))
goto err_node;
