Just to confirm, this is all for debugging purposes right?

Can you use DECLARE_FAULT_ATTR()? Or you need it to be active instead of
passive, i.e. it shouldn't wait for should_fail() to return true, but
actively trigger something on the remoteproc?

I presume the fault injection framework could get a new feature that
lets the fault be injected immediately upon writing the debugfs file.
My goal is to consolidate this sort of logic into one place and then put
it behind some config option that distros can disable so the kernel
isn't bloated with debug features that end users will never care about.
