Subject[PATCH v1 0/4] kunit: tool: add support for QEMU
From
TL;DR: Add support to kunit_tool to dispatch tests via QEMU. Also add
support to immediately shutdown a kernel after running KUnit tests.

Background
----------

KUnit has supported running on all architectures for quite some time;
however, kunit_tool - the script commonly used to invoke KUnit tests -
has only fully supported KUnit run on UML. Its functionality has been
broken up for some time to separate the configure, build, run, and parse
phases making it possible to be used in part on other architectures to a
small extent. Nevertheless, kunit_tool has not supported running tests
on other architectures.

What this patchset does
-----------------------

This patchset introduces first class support to kunit_tool for KUnit to
be run on many popular architectures via QEMU. It does this by adding
two new flags: `--arch` and `--cross_compile`.

`--arch` allows an architecture to be specified by the name the
architecture is given in `arch/`. It uses the specified architecture to
select a minimal amount of Kconfigs and QEMU configs needed for the
architecture to run in QEMU and provide a console from which KTAP
results can be scraped.

`--cross_compile` allows a toolchain prefix to be specified to make
similar to how `CROSS_COMPILE` is used.

Additionally, this patchset revives the previously considered "kunit:
tool: add support for QEMU"[1] patchs. The motivation for this new
kernel command line flags, `kunit_shutdown`, is to better support
running KUnit tests inside of QEMU. For most popular architectures, QEMU
can be made to terminate when the Linux kernel that is being run is
reboted, halted, or powered off. As Kees pointed out in a previous
discussion[2], it is possible to make a kernel initrd that can reboot
the kernel immediately, doing this for every architecture would likely
be infeasible. Instead, just having an option for the kernel to shutdown
when it is done with testing seems a lot simpler, especially since it is
an option which would only available in testing configurations of the
kernel anyway.

Changes since last revision
---------------------------

Mostly fixed lots of minor issues suggested/poited out by David and
Daniel. Also reworked how qemu_configs are loaded: Now each config is in
its own Python file and is loaded dynamically. Given the number of
improvements that address the biggest concerns I had in the last RFC, I
decided to promote this to a normal patch set.

What discussion remains for this patchset?
------------------------------------------

I am still hoping to see some discussion regarding the kunit_shutdown
patch: I want to make sure with the added context of QEMU running under
kunit_tool that this is now a reasonable approach. Nevertheless, I am
pretty happy with this patchset as is, and I did not get any negative
feedback on the previous revision, so I think we can probably just move
forward as is.
