The move happened smack in the middle of merge window and landed in
linux-next towards the end of the merge window.
We seemed to decide to just wait for 5.5, but there is nothing that
looks to block that. And I encouraged Shuah to find more kunit cases
for when it _does_ get merged.
Right. I communicated that to Brendan that we could work on adding more
kunit based tests which would help get more mileage on the kunit.
So if the kunit branch is stable, and people want to start using it
for their unit tests, then I think that would be a good idea, and then
during the 5.5 merge window we'll not just get the infrastructure,
we'll get a few more users too and not just examples.
