I am considering using module_param() with perm = 0 (not visible in
sysfs). The purpose of the param is to set fault attributes during
kerne boot time or module load time. After the kernel boot all can be
set under debug fs, therefore no need to make the module param
visible.

What do you think about this? I have not tested it yet.

----------------------------------------------------------
It's only necessary to call setup_fault_attr() once for all hosts.
Here it's called one time for each host. I think it's ok since the
routine is small and used for debugging purposes.
I could use a static bool to indicate whether setup_fault_attr() has
already been issued.
+ if (fail_mmc_request && !setup_fault_attr_done)
