Subject: [PATCH v2 clocksource 4/5] clocksource: Provide a module parameter to fuzz per-CPU clock checking

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@...nel.org>

Code that checks for clock desynchronization must itself be tested, so
this commit creates a new clocksource.inject_delay_shift_percpu= kernel
boot parameter that adds or subtracts a large value from the check read,
using the specified bit of the CPU ID to determine whether to add or
to subtract.
