I've got one for 2.4:

The testdrive-1.1-for-2.4.19pre10.patch can do random fault injection,
at pseudo-random intervals of selectable frequency, on reads or writes
or both. It's a modified loop.o which requires a separate
testdrive.o, and you just losetup it over a block device (or, more
easily, "mount -o loop /dev/foo /mnt/bar".)

It can trace IOs and will watch for suspicious activity such as
overlapping IOs being submitted. The fault injection code trips in
before the bh request ever gets to the underlying block device.

It shouldn't be too hard to adapt it to bio if you want.
