CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK=y is required for fw_fallback.sh.
Without it, fw_fallback.sh fails with 'usermode helper disabled so
ignoring test'. Enable the config in selftest so that it gets built by
default.

NACK -- the point of the changes was to *allow* us to mimic such
configuration through a proc sysctl knob.

You aren forcing CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK but just having
CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER suffices to emulate the_FALLBACK
functionality.

The issue here seems to be that *all* tests fail once a configuration is
found which is not suitable a tests. With the shiny new proc sysctls we
can test all 3 kernel configurations in one shot. Since we test 3
different kernel configurations naturally some of these won't have the
features needed, so that failure should be treated as non-fatal to allow
the chain of other tests to continue.

This issue was a regression due to commit a6a9be9270c87 ("selftests:
firmware: return Kselftest Skip code for skipped tests") by Shuah for
the verify_reqs(). We need to treat this as a non-fatal / don't skip
return value.

The following would fix this chaining issue:

diff --git a/tools/testing/selftests/firmware/fw_lib.sh b/tools/testing/selftests/firmware/fw_lib.sh
index 6c5f1b2ffb74..1cbb12e284a6 100755
--- a/tools/testing/selftests/firmware/fw_lib.sh
+++ b/tools/testing/selftests/firmware/fw_lib.sh
@@ -91,7 +91,7 @@ verify_reqs()
 	if [ "$TEST_REQS_FW_SYSFS_FALLBACK" = "yes" ]; then
 		if [ ! "$HAS_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER" = "yes" ]; then
 			echo "usermode helper disabled so ignoring test"
-			exit $ksft_skip
+			exit 0
 		fi
 	fi
 }

However its not clear to me if instead we want some new special return
value for selftests so that the framework can detect an that an error
is non-fatal, and can continue. This is a tricky situation given the
script, existing upstream kernel module, are aware of such emulation
hacks via sysctl, but knowledge of this is not obvious to selftests.

Shuah, how do you suggest we handle this corner case? If you are OK
with the above hunk for now I can send a fix for it. In either case
this commit was added on v4.18, so the fix would be a stable fix.

Dan, again, you broke the whole point to the amount of work that went
into emulating testing. As such anyone testing their changes would
yield incorrect results.

In lieu of any suggestion I'm going to request we revert this commit
and send the above fix.

Sorry, I didn't realize this was waiting on me. I agree with all of your
feedback. Please revert 7492902e8d22 ("selftests: firmware: add
CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK to config") and add my Acked-by to
the proposed fix above.

Shuah, do I need to send a patch for that revert?

It would be nice if there were a way (maybe there is?) to let each of
the individual tests be exposed and run by run_kselftest.sh so that each
test gets its own proper pass/skip/fail. It could be done in this case
by making fw_run_tests.sh look more like run_kselftest.sh (running each
test in a subshell and capturing its exit code), but that starts to get
a bit fragile and ugly, too.
