I agree, we rely on the infrastructure of the kselftests framework so
that testing systems do not have to create "custom" frameworks to handle
all of the individual variants that could easily crop up here.

Let's keep it easy for people to run and use these tests, to not do so
is to ensure that they are not used, which is the exact opposite goal of
creating tests.
