HWPOISON: Add simple debugfs interface to inject hwpoison on arbitary PFNs
Andi Kleen [Wed, 16 Sep 2009 09:50:17 +0000 (11:50 +0200)]
Useful for some testing scenarios, although specific testing is often
done better through MADV_POISON

This can be done with the x86 level MCE injector too, but this interface
allows it to do independently from low level x86 changes.

v2: Add module license (Haicheng Li)
