Subject[PATCH 1/3] Documentation: kunit: remove duplicate kunit-tool.rst
From
The information is duplicated now in run_wrapper.rst, which was added in
commit 46201d47d6c4 ("Documentation: kunit: Reorganize documentation
related to running tests").

You cna compare these pages here:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v5.18/dev-tools/kunit/run_wrapper.html
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v5.18/dev-tools/kunit/kunit-tool.html

We should have deleted it in then but it got overlooked.

-kunit_tool How-To
-=================
-
-What is kunit_tool?
-===================
-
-kunit_tool is a script (``tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py``) that aids in building
-the Linux kernel as UML (`User Mode Linux
-<http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/>`_), running KUnit tests, parsing
-the test results and displaying them in a user friendly manner.
-
-kunit_tool addresses the problem of being able to run tests without needing a
-virtual machine or actual hardware with User Mode Linux. User Mode Linux is a
-Linux architecture, like ARM or x86; however, unlike other architectures it
-compiles the kernel as a standalone Linux executable that can be run like any
-other program directly inside of a host operating system. To be clear, it does
-not require any virtualization support: it is just a regular program.
-
-What is a .kunitconfig?
-=======================
-
-It's just a defconfig that kunit_tool looks for in the build directory
-(``.kunit`` by default). kunit_tool uses it to generate a .config as you might
-expect. In addition, it verifies that the generated .config contains the CONFIG
-options in the .kunitconfig; the reason it does this is so that it is easy to
-be sure that a CONFIG that enables a test actually ends up in the .config.
-
-It's also possible to pass a separate .kunitconfig fragment to kunit_tool,
-which is useful if you have several different groups of tests you wish
-to run independently, or if you want to use pre-defined test configs for
-certain subsystems.
-
-Getting Started with kunit_tool
-===============================
-
-If a kunitconfig is present at the root directory, all you have to do is:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run
-
-However, you most likely want to use it with the following options:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --timeout=30 --jobs=`nproc --all`
-
-- ``--timeout`` sets a maximum amount of time to allow tests to run.
-- ``--jobs`` sets the number of threads to use to build the kernel.
-
-.. note::
- This command will work even without a .kunitconfig file: if no
- .kunitconfig is present, a default one will be used instead.
-
-If you wish to use a different .kunitconfig file (such as one provided for
-testing a particular subsystem), you can pass it as an option.
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --kunitconfig=fs/ext4/.kunitconfig
-
-For a list of all the flags supported by kunit_tool, you can run:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --help
-
-Configuring, Building, and Running Tests
-========================================
-
-It's also possible to run just parts of the KUnit build process independently,
-which is useful if you want to make manual changes to part of the process.
-
-A .config can be generated from a .kunitconfig by using the ``config`` argument
-when running kunit_tool:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py config
-
-Similarly, if you just want to build a KUnit kernel from the current .config,
-you can use the ``build`` argument:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py build
-
-And, if you already have a built UML kernel with built-in KUnit tests, you can
-run the kernel and display the test results with the ``exec`` argument:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py exec
-
-The ``run`` command which is discussed above is equivalent to running all three
-of these in sequence.
-
-All of these commands accept a number of optional command-line arguments. The
-``--help`` flag will give a complete list of these, or keep reading this page
-for a guide to some of the more useful ones.
-
-Parsing Test Results
-====================
-
-KUnit tests output their results in TAP (Test Anything Protocol) format.
-kunit_tool will, when running tests, parse this output and print a summary
-which is much more pleasant to read. If you wish to look at the raw test
-results in TAP format, you can pass the ``--raw_output`` argument.
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --raw_output
-
-The raw output from test runs may contain other, non-KUnit kernel log
-lines. You can see just KUnit output with ``--raw_output=kunit``:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --raw_output=kunit
-
-If you have KUnit results in their raw TAP format, you can parse them and print
-the human-readable summary with the ``parse`` command for kunit_tool. This
-accepts a filename for an argument, or will read from standard input.
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- # Reading from a file
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py parse /var/log/dmesg
- # Reading from stdin
- dmesg | ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py parse
-
-This is very useful if you wish to run tests in a configuration not supported
-by kunit_tool (such as on real hardware, or an unsupported architecture).
-
-Filtering Tests
-===============
-
-It's possible to run only a subset of the tests built into a kernel by passing
-a filter to the ``exec`` or ``run`` commands. For example, if you only wanted
-to run KUnit resource tests, you could use:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run 'kunit-resource*'
-
-This uses the standard glob format for wildcards.
-
-Running Tests on QEMU
-=====================
-
-kunit_tool supports running tests on QEMU as well as via UML (as mentioned
-elsewhere). The default way of running tests on QEMU requires two flags:
-
-``--arch``
- Selects a collection of configs (Kconfig as well as QEMU configs
- options, etc) that allow KUnit tests to be run on the specified
- architecture in a minimal way; this is usually not much slower than
- using UML. The architecture argument is the same as the name of the
- option passed to the ``ARCH`` variable used by Kbuild. Not all
- architectures are currently supported by this flag, but can be handled
- by the ``--qemu_config`` discussed later. If ``um`` is passed (or this
- this flag is ignored) the tests will run via UML. Non-UML architectures,
- e.g. i386, x86_64, arm, um, etc. Non-UML run on QEMU.
-
-``--cross_compile``
- Specifies the use of a toolchain by Kbuild. The argument passed here is
- the same passed to the ``CROSS_COMPILE`` variable used by Kbuild. As a
- reminder this will be the prefix for the toolchain binaries such as gcc
- for example ``sparc64-linux-gnu-`` if you have the sparc toolchain
- installed on your system, or
- ``$HOME/toolchains/microblaze/gcc-9.2.0-nolibc/microblaze-linux/bin/microblaze-linux-``
- if you have downloaded the microblaze toolchain from the 0-day website
- to a directory in your home directory called ``toolchains``.
-
-In many cases it is likely that you may want to run an architecture which is
-not supported by the ``--arch`` flag, or you may want to just run KUnit tests
-on QEMU using a non-default configuration. For this use case, you can write
-your own QemuConfig. These QemuConfigs are written in Python. They must have an
-import line ``from ..qemu_config import QemuArchParams`` at the top of the file
-and the file must contain a variable called ``QEMU_ARCH`` that has an instance
-of ``QemuArchParams`` assigned to it. An example can be seen in
-``tools/testing/kunit/qemu_configs/x86_64.py``.
-
-Once you have a QemuConfig you can pass it into kunit_tool using the
-``--qemu_config`` flag; when used this flag replaces the ``--arch`` flag. If we
-were to do this with the ``x86_64.py`` example from above, the invocation would
-look something like this:
-
-.. code-block:: bash
-
- ./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run \
- --timeout=60 \
- --jobs=12 \
- --qemu_config=./tools/testing/kunit/qemu_configs/x86_64.py
-
-Other Useful Options
-====================
-
-kunit_tool has a number of other command-line arguments which can be useful
-when adapting it to fit your environment or needs.
-
-Some of the more useful ones are:
-
-``--help``
- Lists all of the available options. Note that different commands
- (``config``, ``build``, ``run``, etc) will have different supported
- options. Place ``--help`` before the command to list common options,
- and after the command for options specific to that command.
-
-``--build_dir``
- Specifies the build directory that kunit_tool will use. This is where
- the .kunitconfig file is located, as well as where the .config and
- compiled kernel will be placed. Defaults to ``.kunit``.
-
-``--make_options``
- Specifies additional options to pass to ``make`` when compiling a
- kernel (with the ``build`` or ``run`` commands). For example, to enable
- compiler warnings, you can pass ``--make_options W=1``.
-
-``--alltests``
- Builds a UML kernel with all config options enabled using ``make
- allyesconfig``. This allows you to run as many tests as is possible,
- but is very slow and prone to breakage as new options are added or
- modified. In most cases, enabling all tests which have satisfied
- dependencies by adding ``CONFIG_KUNIT_ALL_TESTS=1`` to your
- .kunitconfig is preferable.
-
-There are several other options (and new ones are often added), so do check
-``--help`` if you're looking for something not mentioned here.
