Thanks for reporting both the failure and the success cases,
that helps me understand a little bit better.

If instead of the above patch, if you add the following (untested,
not even compile tested) to the beginning of of_unittest():

if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_UML))
unittest_unflatten_overlay_base();

does that also result in a good test result of:

### dt-test ### end of unittest - 224 passed, 0 failed

I think I need to find some time to build and boot a UML kernel soon.

My current _guess_ is that the original problem was not a failure to
unflatten any present devicetree in UML but instead that the UML
kernel does not call unflatten_device_tree() and thus fails to
indirectly call unittest_unflatten_overlay_base(), which is
called by unflatten_device_tree().

unittest_unflatten_overlay_base() is an unfortunate wart that I
added, but I don't have a better alternative yet.
