Akinobu Mita - July 18, 2011, 1:16 a.m.
The notifier error injection provides the ability to inject artifical
errors to specified notifier chain callbacks. It is useful to test
the error handling of notifier call chain failures.

This adds common basic functions to define which type of events can be
fail and to initialize the debugfs interface to control what error code
should be returned and which event should be failed.

* v2
- put a comment in err_inject_notifier_block_init()
- only allow valid errno to be injected (-MAX_ERRNO <= errno <= 0)
