[PATCH] RFC: hung_task: taint kernel

From: Daniel Vetter
Date: Thu May 02 2019 - 16:47:22 EST

There's the hung_task_panic sysctl, but that's a bit an extreme measure.
As a fallback taint at least the machine.

Our CI uses this to decide when a reboot is necessary, plus to figure
out whether the kernel is still happy.

v2: Works much better when I put the else { add_taint() } at the right
