Subject: [PATCH v9 clocksource 4/6] clocksource: Provide a module parameter to fuzz per-CPU clock checking
Date: Sun, 18 Apr 2021 21:52:58 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210419045300.596332-4-paulmck@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210419045155.GA596058@paulmck-ThinkPad-P17-Gen-1>

Code that checks for clock desynchronization must itself be tested, so
create a new clocksource.inject_delay_shift_percpu= kernel boot parameter
that adds or subtracts a large value from the check read, using the
specified bit of the CPU ID to determine whether to add or to subtract.
