[PATCH] fault injection: process filtering for fault-injection capabilities
This patch provides process filtering feature. The process filter allows failing only permitted processes by /proc/<pid>/make-it-fail Please see the example that demostrates how to inject slab allocation failures into module init/cleanup code in Documentation/fault-injection/fault-injection.txt Signed-off-by: Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
