Should the callers be ignoring the return value? From what I can tell
the filesystem is unmounted between test runs so I wonder if it may help
if the return code is used and the test exits with an appropriate error
to user space for possible investigation instead of attempting to run a
new test on top of the resctrl filesystem that could potentially be
having issues at the time.
