+KUnit debugfs representation
+When kunit test suites are initialized, they create an associated directory
+in /sys/kernel/debug/kunit/<test-suite>.  The directory contains one file
+- results: "cat results" displays results of each test case and the results
+  of the entire suite for the last test run.
+The debugfs representation is primarily of use when kunit test suites are
+run in a native environment, either as modules or builtin.  Having a way
+to display results like this is valuable as otherwise results can be
+intermixed with other events in dmesg output.  The maximum size of each
+results file is KUNIT_LOG_SIZE bytes (defined in include/kunit/test.h).
