failslab: add ability to filter slab caches
Dmitry Monakhov [Fri, 26 Feb 2010 06:36:12 +0000 (09:36 +0300)]
This patch allow to inject faults only for specific slabs.
In order to preserve default behavior cache filter is off by
default (all caches are faulty).

One may define specific set of slabs like this:
# mark skbuff_head_cache as faulty
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/slab/skbuff_head_cache/failslab
# Turn on cache filter (off by default)
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/failslab/cache-filter
# Turn on fault injection
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/failslab/times
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/failslab/probability
