memory: memory notifier error injection module

This provides the ability to inject artifical errors to memory hotplug
notifier chain callbacks.  It is controlled through debugfs interface
under /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/memory

If the notifier call chain should be failed with some events notified,
write the error code to "actions/<notifier event>/error".

Example: Inject memory hotplug offline error (-12 == -ENOMEM)

	# cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/memory
	# echo -12 > actions/MEM_GOING_OFFLINE/error
	# echo offline > /sys/devices/system/memory/memoryXXX/state
	bash: echo: write error: Cannot allocate memory
