Thanks for this Laura!

Replying here to what you wrote in v4:

I guess it depends on what is the expected behavior in kselftests in
general and whether the user is expected to have merged the provided
`config` or not.

Also, what about modules being built-in / `--first-run` in `modprobe`?
`modprobe` by default may return successfully even if no module was
loaded (or even present, if it was builtin). In that case, is a
kselftest script supposed to succeed, skip or fail? I would say at the
least it should be "skip" (like it is done in the case where the
module is not found), and I wouldn't mind "fail" either (i.e. running
`modprobe` with `--first-run`).

In addition, what about module removal failures? Are they ignored on
purpose, e.g. because the kernel might not be configured with module
unloading? If it is possible to check whether `MODULE_UNLOAD` is
supported in the current config, it would be nice to check the removal
also worked. And if it is not supported, skipping the removal entirely.

Finally, what about the case where `RUST` isn't enabled? I think Shuah
mentioned it in a previous version.

I am not sure I understand this. In which situation could this happen?
The helpers should always be there, no? I tested this with `make
-C...../selftests install TARGETS=rust INSTALL_PATH=...` and it seems
to work in that case too.

To be clear, I agree with Shuah that we should test that everything is
working as expected. In fact, I would prefer to run with `-e` or, much
better, use something else than bash :) But if something should never
happen, should it be a skip? Shouldn't we just fail because the test
infrastructure is somehow missing?

Orthogonally, if we want the test, shouldn't this just test the
`source` command directly rather than a proxy (file existing)?

Thanks!

Cheers,
Miguel

It's my understanding (and please correct if I'm wrong) that when a 
kselftest is shipped with a config file, that config file should be 
treated as a requirement for the test and the user is expected to use it
(running make kselftest-merge). I agree the script shouldn't blow up if
the user doesn't though, so it still makes sense to gracefully skip the
test when the requirements are not met.

This makes me realize that I should probably put these in the config
too:

CONFIG_MODULES=y
CONFIG_MODULE_UNLOAD=y

Adding --first-time (you meant --first-time, right?) definitely makes
sense, thanks for the pointer. I think having the modules being built-in
should be treated as a skip, same as when they are not there at all.

So something like this:

 for sample in "${rust_sample_modules[@]}"; do
-    if ! /sbin/modprobe -n -q "$sample"; then
+    if ! /sbin/modprobe -n -q --first-time "$sample"; then
         ktap_skip_all "module $sample is not found in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)"
         exit "$KSFT_SKIP"
     fi

will cover both cases.

I think it's safe to assume no other module will depend on the sample
rust modules, so is there any other reason unloading the modules 
might fail apart from MODULE_UNLOAD not being enabled? If not, then I
think we should just check if the removal worked and continue/skip the
test accordingly.

I can't just simply skip all tests like this though:

 for sample in "${rust_sample_modules[@]}"; do
     if /sbin/modprobe -q "$sample"; then
-        /sbin/modprobe -q -r "$sample"
+        if ! /sbin/modprobe -q -r "$sample"; then
+            ktap_skip_all "Failed to unload module $sample, please enable CONFIG_MODULE_UNLOAD"
+            exit "$KSFT_SKIP"
+        fi
         ktap_test_pass "$sample"
     else
         ktap_test_fail "$sample"

as the test plan has already been printed by then.
I'll need to rework the script a bit to skip the test upon errors on 
module removal.

> 

When rust is not enabled, no sample module is enabled either so the test
would still catch this in the first `if ! /sbin/modprobe -n -q --first-time
"$sample"` block and exit with the skip code.

If we need more granularity on the feedback provided to the user (i.e.
indication on what particular options are missing), then I guess we 
could check the current kernel config (/proc/config.gz) and skip the
entire test if any required config is missing. However, this adds an 
extra dependency on CONFIG_IKCONFIG=y and CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC=y.

Any advice on the best approach here?

Kselftest exit codes are predefined
(https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/tools/testing/selftests/kselftest.h?h=v6.8-rc6#n74),
so if we use `set -e` and source a missing file we end up returning "1"
as if the test was run and failed. With this check we're sure to return
a value that makes sense in the event the helpers file ever gets moved.

Sure, checking the return value for source also makes sense.

Thanks!

Yeah, I meant `--first-time`, sorry.

I didn't see other tests using it, so I am not sure if there is a
reason not to do that (ditto for adding `MODULES` etc. to `config` and
whether we should fail/skip in certain cases) -- I guess Shuah will
let us know.

What about the other calls to `modprobe`?

I was thinking more in general terms: that we would like to catch if
unloading does not work as expected.

Especially since these "simple samples" are, in part, testing that the
basic infrastructure for Rust modules works. So I would say it is
important to check whether module unloading failed.

For instance, if something is very broken, a Rust module could in
principle fail unloading even if `MODULE_UNLOAD=y` and even if C
modules unload without issue.

Perhaps Shuah prefers to merge this before and then improve it instead
-- I don't know. I didn't mean to trigger a rework :)

Especially since it is unclear what is the "pattern" to follow here --
perhaps this is another case of a wider cleanup for more tests, like
the ktap helpers I suggested (thanks for implementing those by the
way!).

I guess this also depends on what tests are supposed to do etc., so
let's see what Shuah says.

Yeah, definitely. I was thinking here about just failing if something
does not work as expected, i.e. speaking more generally (that is why I
also mentioned even other languages).

By "failing" here I didn't mean reporting the test as failing; I see
it as something in the layer above. That is, if the helpers file is
ever moved or is not installed for whatever reason, then it is the
test infrastructure that failed. So I would have expected that "skip"
is due to a reason related to the test itself rather than something
unexpected related to the infrastructure, but I guess it may be part
of the "skip" meaning in kselftests. So it depends on what is supposed
to mean in kselftests, which I don't know.

My pleasure!

Perhaps we can also add a section about these tests to the new

how to run them, and link to the kselftest documentation for further
information.

Not necessary to resend, perhaps we can do that in a separate patch when

Yes, that sounds good :)

Laura: If you like to write some basic intro as proposed by Valentin 
please do it against

https://github.com/Rust-for-Linux/linux/blob/rust-next/Documentation/rust/testing.rst

in a separate patch.

Kselftest should all the tests it can run and skip only the ones it can't
run if configuration and other dependencies aren't met. The reason is to
avoid false failures.

I applied this to linux-kselftest next for Linux 6.9-rc1.

We can make improvements if any on top of this.
