Subject[PATCH] error-injection: Add prompt for function error injection
From: "Steven Rostedt (Google)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

The config to be able to inject error codes into any function annotated
with ALLOW_ERROR_INJECTION() is enabled when CONFIG_FUNCTION_ERROR_INJECTION
is enabled. But unfortunately, this is always enabled on x86 when KPROBES
is enabled, and there's no way to turn it off.

As kprobes is useful for observability of the kernel, it is useful to have
it enabled in production environments. But error injection should be
avoided. Add a prompt to the config to allow it to be disabled even when
kprobes is enabled, and get rid of the "def_bool y".

This is a kernel debug feature (it's in Kconfig.debug), and should have
never been something enabled by default.
