Subject[PATCH] [19/21] HWPOISON: Add madvise() based injector for hardware poisoned pages v4
Date

Impact: optional, useful for debugging

Add a new madvice sub command to inject poison for some
pages in a process' address space. This is useful for
testing the poison page handling.

This patch can allow root to tie up large amounts of memory.
I got feedback from container developers and they didn't see any
problem.

v2: Use write flag for get_user_pages to make sure to always get
a fresh page
v3: Don't request write mapping (Fengguang Wu)
v4: Move MADV_* number to avoid conflict with KSM (Hugh Dickins)
