Subject[PATCH -v4 0/6] notifier error injection
Date
This provides kernel modules that can be used to test the error handling
of notifier call chain failures by injecting artifical errors to the
following notifier chain callbacks.

* CPU notifier
* PM notifier
* memory hotplug notifier
* powerpc pSeries reconfig notifier

Example: Inject CPU offline error (-1 == -EPERM)

# cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu
# echo -1 > actions/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE/error
# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
bash: echo: write error: Operation not permitted

There are also handy shell scripts to test CPU and memory hotplug notifier.
Note that these tests didn't detect error handling bugs on my machine but
I still think this feature is usefull to test the code path which is rarely
executed.

Changelog:

* v4 (It is about 11 months since v3)
- prefix all APIs with notifier_err_inject_*
- rearrange debugfs interface
(e.g. $DEBUGFS/cpu-notifier-error-inject/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE -->
$DEBUGFS/notifier-error-inject/cpu/actions/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE/error)
- update modules to follow new interface
- add -r option for memory-notifier.sh to specify percent of offlining
memory blocks

* v3
- rewrite to be kernel modules instead of initializing at late_initcall()s
(it makes the diffstat look different but most code remains unchanged)
- export err_inject_notifier_block_{init,cleanup} for modules
- export pSeries_reconfig_notifier_{,un}register symbols for a module
- notifier priority can be specified as a module parameter
- add testing scripts in tools/testing/fault-injection

* v2
- "PM: Improve error code of pm_notifier_call_chain()" is now in -next
- "debugfs: add debugfs_create_int" is dropped
- put a comment in err_inject_notifier_block_init()
- only allow valid errno to be injected (-MAX_ERRNO <= errno <= 0)
- improve Kconfig help text
- make CONFIG_PM_NOTIFIER_ERROR_INJECTION visible even if PM_DEBUG is disabled
- make CONFIG_PM_NOTIFIER_ERROR_INJECTION default if PM_DEBUG is enabled
