A wait on the $AFTER_FIRST_PATH file would be probably more deterministic than a sleep here.

  while [ ! -f "${AFTER_FIRST_PATH}" ]; do
          sleep 0.1
  done

I would also expect something similar for the `prepare_kernel_app` function considering the same race is most probably present and simply not triggered by a chance of luck.
Seems like gen-kernel-test-events does not expose the same sync capabilities here, please use gen-ust-events as an example of how it is done.

Let us know how your testing goes.

Thanks
