2010-03-06lkdtm: add debugfs access and loosen KPROBE tiesSimon Kagstrom
Add adds a debugfs interface and additional failure modes to LKDTM to provide similar functionality to the provoke-crash driver submitted here: Crashes can now be induced either through module parameters (as before) or through the debugfs interface as in provoke-crash. The patch also provides a new "direct" interface, where KPROBES are not used, i.e., the crash is invoked directly upon write to the debugfs file. When built without KPROBES configured, only this mode is available. Signed-off-by: Simon Kagstrom <> Cc: M. Mohan Kumar <> Cc: Americo Wang <> Cc: David Woodhouse <> Cc: Ingo Molnar <> Cc: "Eric W.
