cpu: rewrite cpu-notifier-error-inject module

Rewrite existing cpu-notifier-error-inject module to use debugfs based new
framework.

This change removes cpu_up_prepare_error and cpu_down_prepare_error module
parameters which were used to specify error code to be injected.  We could
keep these module parameters for backward compatibility by module_param_cb
but it seems overkill for this module.

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

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

Example1: inject CPU offline error (-1 == -EPERM)

	# cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu
	# echo -1 > actions/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE/error
	# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
	bash: echo: write error: Operation not permitted

Example2: inject CPU online error (-2 == -ENOENT)

	# cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu
	# echo -2 > actions/CPU_UP_PREPARE/error
	# echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
	bash: echo: write error: No such file or directory

This option provides a kernel module that can be used to test
- the error handling of the cpu notifiers
+ the error handling of the cpu notifiers by injecting artifical
+ errors to CPU notifier chain callbacks. It is controlled through
+ debugfs interface under /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu
+
+ If the notifier call chain should be failed with some events
+ notified, write the error code to "actions/<notifier event>/error".
+
+ Example: Inject CPU offline error (-1 == -EPERM)
+
+ # cd /sys/kernel/debug/notifier-error-inject/cpu
+ # echo -1 > actions/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE/error
+ # echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
+ bash: echo: write error: Operation not permitted
