Subject[PATCH 5/4] procfs: utility handler to trigger different errors
Date
Add a /proc/crashtest handler which triggers different kernel errors.
Just write a single character (if many are written, only the first one
is read), to trigger different errors:
- p: raise a kernel panic
- w: generate a warning
- o: raise an oops
The handler permissions are set to 0220 to avoid non root users to crash
the system.
