fault-injection: add tool to run command with failslab or fail_page_alloc
This adds tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh to run a command while injecting slab/page allocation failures via fault injection. Example: Run a command "make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests" with injecting slab allocation failure. # ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh \ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests Same as above except to specify 100 times failures at most instead of one time at most by default. # ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh --times=100 \ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests Same as above except to inject page allocation failure instead of slab allocation failure. # env FAILCMD_TYPE=fail_page_alloc \ ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh --times=100 \ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests 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>

+Tool to run command with failslab or fail_page_alloc
+----------------------------------------------------
+In order to make it easier to accomplish the tasks mentioned above, we can use
+tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh. Please run a command
+"./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh --help" for more information and
+see the following examples.
+
+Examples:
+
+Run a command "make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests" with injecting slab
+allocation failure.
+
+ # ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh \
+ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests
+
+Same as above except to specify 100 times failures at most instead of one time
+at most by default.
+
+ # ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh --times=100 \
+ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests
+
+Same as above except to inject page allocation failure instead of slab
+allocation failure.
+
+ # env FAILCMD_TYPE=fail_page_alloc \
+ ./tools/testing/fault-injection/failcmd.sh --times=100 \
+ -- make -C tools/testing/selftests/ run_tests
