Sorry it took so long to respond. I am reviving this patchset now,
about to send out a new revision and I just saw this comment.

I tried that, but it doesn't work without an initramfs. We could add
an initramfs for KUnit at some point if highly desired, but I think
that is outside the scope of this patchset. Additionally, this patch
actually moves running tests to later in the init process, which is
still an improvement over the way KUnit works today.

There are some other reasons I wouldn't want to make that change right
now, which will become apparent in a patch that I will send out in
short order.

Cheers
