Subject[PATCH] selftests: memory-hotplug: avoid spamming logs with dump_page(), ratio limit hot-remove error test
Date
While the offline memory test obey ratio limit, the same test with error
injection does not and tries to offline all the hotpluggable memory, spamming
system logs with hundreds of thousands of dump_page() entries, slowing system
down (to the point the test itself timeout and gets terminated) and excessive fs
occupation:
