Just to clear up potential confusion for others, I'll note that these
aren't counting test cases.
This is from's output, so it counts each parameter from
parameterized tests as "subtests."

Copying my command from, one can use this
to count the # of test cases.
$ ./tools/testing/kunit/ run --kunitconfig=...
--raw_output=kunit --kernel_args=kunit.action=list | egrep

I see this enabling a total of 260 test _cases_ (including skipped).

The default (basically just CONFIG_KUNIT_ALL_TESTS=y) gives 192
(including skipped).

Looks good to me, some small comments below.

missing: "enable"?
"if they enable any new tests"

Hmm, should we state a preference for how heavy (time or
resource-wise) tests should be?
Because the comment says it's meant for automation, but I can imagine
humans wanting to run it.
(I'm completely fine with us not stating one, just throwing the idea
out there for discussion)

Currently, I get this with an incremental rebuild:
Elapsed time: 141.627s total, 1.384s configuring, 136.175s building,
3.970s running

But we do have tests on other arches that take ~30s to run (kfence),
for example.
Would such tests be candidates for inclusion in this file?
Or is it only problematic when they start taking a couple minutes each?
