+  unreliability, all I/O returns errors.  Optional features may be
+  combined (e.g. corrupt_bio_byte on READ and drop_writes).  Conflicting
+  features (e.g. corrupt_bio_byte on WRITE and drop_writes) are resolved
+  according to the following feature precedence (descending order):

+  corrupt_bio_byte <Nth byte> <bio_flags> <value>:
+	Corrupt bios that have specific bi_rw flag(s), e.g.: READ=0 or
+	REQ_WRITE=1|REQ_META=32, by writing <value> to the <Nth byte> of
+	bios that have data.
+	Examples:
+	1) corrupt 32nd byte in READ bios with the value 1:
+	   corrupt_bio_byte 32 0 1
+	2) corrupt 224th byte in WRITE|REQ_META bios with the value 0:
+	   corrupt_bio_byte 224 33 0
 
   drop_writes:
 	All write I/O is silently ignored.
