BTW, it's helpful to state the base branch / commit as clearly as
possible near the top of the cover letter, say,

--8<--

This series is based on arm64/for-next/core [1]
commit 9ce1263033cd ("selftests, arm64: add a selftest for passing tagged pointers to kernel")

[1] git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm64/linux.git for-next/core

-->8--

This is particularly important if you expect the maintainer to pick up
the patches.

You don't need to reference a specific commit unless there's a
significant chance of conflicts if the wrong commit is used, but it can
help provide a clue as to why you're basing on this alternate branch.

What's your approach to checking that the test failure paths work?

We could either hack the kernel or the tests to provoke "fake" failures,
and I don't think it's necessary to test everything in this way,
providing we have confidence that the test strategy and framework works
in general.
