[PATCH v2 23/23] netoops: Add an interface to trigger various types of crashes.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


It is very useful to be able to test the crash path, but in order to do so, we
need to expose various ways to crash the kernel in a deterministic fashion.

This commit adds a file, /proc/sys/kernel/net_dump_now that takes various
tokens that will crash the kernel in various ways.

This requires kmsg_dump() be accessible to modules, so export it.

Changelog:
- v2
   - Folded EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(kmsg_dump) into this patch
