The current kunit execution model is to provide base kunit functionality
and tests built-in to the kernel.  The aim of this series is to allow
building kunit itself and tests as modules.  This in turn allows a
simple form of selective execution; load the module you wish to test.
In doing so, kunit itself (if also built as a module) will be loaded as
an implicit dependency.

Because this requires a core API modification - if a module delivers
multiple suites, they must be declared with the kunit_test_suites()
macro - we're proposing this patch set as a candidate to be applied to the
test tree before too many kunit consumers appear.  We attempt to deal
with existing consumers in patch 4.

Changes since v2:
 - moved string-stream.h header to lib/kunit/string-stream-impl.h (Brendan)
   (patch 1)
 - split out non-exported interfaces in try-catch-impl.h (Brendan)
   (patch 2)
 - added kunit_find_symbol() and KUNIT_INIT_*SYMBOL to lookup non-exported
   symbols. KUNIT_INIT_*SYMBOL() is defined so that a mismatch between
   local symbol definition and definition of symbol in target will trigger
   a compilation error when the object is compiled built-in (Brendan)
   (patches 3, 4)
 - removed #ifdef MODULE around module licenses (Randy, Brendan, Andy)
   (patch 4)
 - replaced kunit_test_suite() with kunit_test_suites() rather than
   supporting both (Brendan) (patch 4)
 - lookup sysctl_hung_task_timeout_secs as kunit may be built as a module
   and the symbol may not be available (patch 5)
 - fixed whitespace issues in doc (patch 6)

Alan Maguire (6):
  kunit: move string-stream.h to lib/kunit/string-stream-impl.h
  kunit: hide unexported try-catch interface in try-catch-impl.h
  kunit: add kunit_find_symbol() function for symbol lookup
  kunit: allow kunit tests to be loaded as a module
  kunit: allow kunit to be loaded as a module
  kunit: update documentation to describe module-based build
