Sorry for the lack of explanation.
The new framework is supposed to be used by a userspace testing tool
(such as a shell script). For the availability, this framework enables user to
designate the inode number of the target file on the device to inject faults.
On accessing the target file through page caches, a fault will be injected.
Also, user can designate the logical block address as the target position
of a fault injection.
