Oh, I just realized the common fault injection can inject into specified
module with function granularity, sorry.

I agreed that it will be good to make common fault injection better,
covering more cases, so that it can benefit all modules which need fault
injection functionality. But rather than injecting kmalloc, there will be
other injection demands from erofs/f2fs, like injecting in the middle of
their specified function, how could we do that? Could you give us advice?

Thanks,
