2012-07-31cpu: rewrite cpu-notifier-error-inject moduleAkinobu Mita1-38/+25
Rewrite existing cpu-notifier-error-inject module to use debugfs based new framework. This change removes cpu_up_prepare_error and cpu_down_prepare_error module parameters which were used to specify error code to be injected. We could keep these module parameters for backward compatibility by module_param_cb but it seems overkill for this module. This provides the ability to inject artifical errors to CPU notifier chain callbacks. It is controlled through debugfs interface under /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu If the notifier call chain should be failed with some events notified, write the error code to "actions/<notifier event>/error". Example1: 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 Example2: inject CPU online error (-2 == -ENOENT) # cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu # echo -2 > actions/CPU_UP_PREPARE/error # echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online bash: echo: write error: No such file or directory Signed-off-by: Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com> Cc: Pavel Machek <pavel@ucw.cz> Cc: "Rafael J.

2010-05-27fault-injection: add CPU notifier error injection moduleAkinobu Mita1-0/+63
I used this module to test the series of modification to the cpu notifiers code. Example1: inject CPU offline error (-1 == -EPERM) # modprobe cpu-notifier-error-inject cpu_down_prepare_error=-1 # echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online bash: echo: write error: Operation not permitted Example2: inject CPU online error (-2 == -ENOENT) # modprobe cpu-notifier-error-inject cpu_up_prepare_error=-2 # echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online bash: echo: write error: No such file or directory [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix Kconfig help text] Signed-off-by: Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
