Yeah, I am not exactly excited by maintaining such a set of functions.

I don't think anyone wants to go with the heap allocation route.

Along the lines of the union/single copy idea[1]. What if we just put
a union of all the assertion types in the kunit struct? One is already
allocated for every test case and we only need one assertion object
for each test case at a time, so I imagine that sould work.

I will start messing around with the idea. Still, it sounds like we
are down to either reducing the number of instances of this struct
that get created per test case, or we need to remove it entirely (as
you have done here).

Cheers
