The fault injection subsystem was introduced in the initial upstreamed
EROFS version, which is taken from f2fs by Chao Yu.

Fault injection is important to test fs.. However, I have no more idea
about the future plan of this feature...Follow f2fs or use the general
fault injection...

There already exists erofs_kmalloc, thus I think it's both ok to use
erofs_kmalloc or kmalloc for this patch at least.

Chao, any idea about this?
