People do things. Just expect it.

Still not out of the woods. Still facing Lions and Tigers and Bears,
Oh my!

So kunit_abort() is normally called as the result of an assert
failure (as written many lines further above).

kunit_abort()
test->try_catch.throw(&test->try_catch)
// this is really kunit_generic_throw(), yes?
complete_and_exit()
if (comp)
// comp is test_case_completion?
complete(comp)
do_exit()
// void __noreturn do_exit(long code)
// depending on the task, either panic
// or the task dies

I did not read through enough of the code to understand what is going
on here. Is each kunit_module executed in a newly created thread?
And if kunit_abort() is called then that thread dies? Or something
else?

This may be another case of whether a kunit_module is approximately a
single KUNIT_EXPECT_*() or a larger number of them.

I still want, for example, of_unittest_property_string() to include a large
number of KUNIT_EXPECT_*() instances. In that case I still want the rest of
the tests in the kunit_module to be executed even after a KUNIT_ASSERT_*()
fails. The existing test code has that property.
