I do something similar when I am working on top of a branch that isn't
already in the mainline. In any case, repeating myself

Let's work on top of - it is rebased to 5.4-rc1 and ready for use.

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/shuah/linux-kselftest.git/log/?h=test

Let's use that for kunit work for 5.5. I won't add any kselftest patches
to it and keep it dedicated for kunit work. When tests are ready for
upstream, I can keep adding them to this branch.

thanks,
