Mmmm...I just realized that the patch I sent you the other day makes
this patch unhappy because unflatten_device_tree is in the .init
section. So I will need to fix that. I still think that the correct
course of action is to make KUnit non init. Luis pointed out in
another thread that to be 100% sure that everything will be properly
initialized, KUnit must be able to run after all initialization takes
place.

Absolutely. Well I already had to touch checkpatch.pl for something
else, so at least I know roughly what I am getting myself into.

Fair enough, I tried to apply your comments the best that I could on
v4, but I think I will probably need to make another pass (especially
given the init thing).

Anyway, let's continue the discussion on v4.
