I confess I'd only been thinking about supporting the case of a user
modprobe-ing a kunit test suite module directly and wanting a clean set
of results separated from other dmesg output. However the scheme you
describe does seem workable for the UML case also. With the
late_initcalls the builtin kunit suites will likely run early in boot but perhaps we could tweak the
semantics such that the full results debugfs file is not populated until
the tests have run to simplify script-based probing. I'll try some
experiments with the debugfs patch once it's ready. Thanks!
