David Gow Feb. 28, 2020, 7:18 p.m. UTC
Remove some of the outmoded "Why KUnit" rationale, and move some
UML-specific information to the kunit_tool page. Also update the Getting
Started guide to mention running tests without the kunit_tool wrapper.

Sorry: I missed a couple of issues in the last version. They're fixed
here, and I think this should be ready to go.

Changelog:

v4:
- Fix typo: s/offsers/offers
- Talk about KUnit tests running on most "architectures" instead of
  "kernel configurations.
v3:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kselftest/20200214235723.254228-1-davidgow@google.com/T/#u
- Added a note that KUnit can be used with UML, both with and without
  kunit_tool to replace the section moved to kunit_tool.
v2:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kselftest/f99a3d4d-ad65-5fd1-3407-db33f378b1fa@gmail.com/T/
- Reinstated the "Why Kunit?" section, minus the comparison with other
  testing frameworks (covered in the FAQ), and the description of UML.
- Moved the description of UML into to kunit_tool page.
- Tidied up the wording around how KUnit is built and run to make it
  work
  without the UML description.
v1:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kselftest/9c703dea-a9e1-94e2-c12d-3cb0a09e75ac@gmail.com/T/

Thanks for all the changes.  The documents are now much more understandable
and useful.

+
+        CONFIG_LIST_KUNIT_TEST=y

+It'll warn you if you haven't included the dependencies of the options you're
+using.
+
+.. note::
+   Note that removing something from the ``.kunitconfig`` will not trigger a
+   rebuild of the ``.config`` file: the configuration is only updated if the

+   other tools (such as make menuconfig) to adjust other config options.

+Running the tests
+-----------------
 
 To make sure that everything is set up correctly, simply invoke the Python
 wrapper from your kernel repo:

 	Because it is building a lot of sources for the first time, the
 	``Building KUnit kernel`` step may take a while.
 
+Running tests without the KUnit Wrapper
+=======================================
+
+If you'd rather not use the KUnit Wrapper (if, for example, you need to
+integrate with other systems, or use an architecture other than UML), KUnit can
+be included in any kernel, and the results read out and parsed manually.
+
+.. note::
+   KUnit is not designed for use in a production system, and it's possible that
+   tests may reduce the stability or security of the system.
+
+
+
+Configuring the kernel
+----------------------
+
+In order to enable KUnit itself, you simply need to enable the ``CONFIG_KUNIT``
+Kconfig option (it's under Kernel Hacking/Kernel Testing and Coverage in
+menuconfig). From there, you can enable any KUnit tests you want: they usually
+have config options ending in ``_KUNIT_TEST``.
+
+KUnit and KUnit tests can be compiled as modules: in this case the tests in a
+module will be run when the module is loaded.
+
+Running the tests
+-----------------
+
+Build and run your kernel as usual. Test output will be written to the kernel
+log in `TAP <https://testanything.org/>`_ format.
+
+.. note::
+   It's possible that there will be other lines and/or data interspersed in the
+   TAP output.
