Hey Alan,

I just wanted to make sure you're not in the dark and wondering what
happened in regards to this patchset. To my knowledge, I believe you
have all necessary acks/reviewed-bys. As far as I am concerned,
everything looks good here and is ready to go. The only remaining bit
is Shuah picking it up, and sending it out in a pull request. Based on
the nature of this series, it will have to wait until 5.6; however, I
think we can accept it into kselftest/test (we are planning on
renaming it to kunit-next or something like that) as soon as we cut
that, which should be pretty soon.

Feel free to poke us if you have any questions!

Thanks again for all your hard work on this! I think this is going to
be a valuable addition to KUnit.
