From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@kernel.org>

Code that checks for clock desynchronization must itself be tested, so
this commit creates 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.

+	clocksource.inject_delay_shift_percpu= [KNL]
+			Clocksource delay injection partitions the CPUs
+			into two sets, one whose clocks are moved ahead
+			and the other whose clocks are moved behind.
+			This kernel parameter selects the CPU-number
+			bit that determines which of these two sets the
+			corresponding CPU is placed into.  For example,
+			setting this parameter to the value 4 will result
+			in the first set containing alternating groups
+			of 16 CPUs whose clocks are moved ahead, while
+			the second set will contain the rest of the CPUs,
+			whose clocks are moved behind.
+
+			The default value of -1 disables this type of
+			error injection.
