 This allows ``VMAP_STACK`` support on x86, and can simplify support of
 architectures that do not have a fixed module region.
+``CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST`` utilizes the KUnit Test Framework for testing.
+This means each test focuses on a small unit of functionality and
+there are a few ways these tests can be run.
+Each test will print the KASAN report if an error is detected and then
+print the number of the test and the status of the test:
+        ok 28 - kmalloc_double_kzfree
+or, if kmalloc failed::
+        # kmalloc_large_oob_right: ASSERTION FAILED at lib/test_kasan.c:163
+        Expected ptr is not null, but is
+        not ok 4 - kmalloc_large_oob_right
+or, if a KASAN report was expected, but not found::
+        # kmalloc_double_kzfree: EXPECTATION FAILED at lib/test_kasan.c:629
+        Expected kasan_data->report_expected == kasan_data->report_found, but
+        kasan_data->report_expected == 1
+        kasan_data->report_found == 0
+        not ok 28 - kmalloc_double_kzfree
+All test statuses are tracked as they run and an overall status will
+be printed at the end::
+        ok 1 - kasan
+        not ok 1 - kasan
+(1) Loadable Module
+With ``CONFIG_KUNIT`` enabled, ``CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST`` can be built as
+a loadable module and run on any architecture that supports KASAN
+using something like insmod or modprobe. The module is called ``test_kasan``.
+(2) Built-In
+With ``CONFIG_KUNIT`` built-in, ``CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST`` can be built-in
+on any architecure that supports KASAN. These and any other KUnit
+tests enabled will run and print the results at boot as a late-init
+(3) Using kunit_tool
+With ``CONFIG_KUNIT`` and ``CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST`` built-in, we can also
+use kunit_tool to see the results of these along with other KUnit
+tests in a more readable way. This will not print the KASAN reports
+of tests that passed. Use `KUnit documentation <https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/dev-tools/kunit/index.html>`_ for more up-to-date
+information on kunit_tool.

+``CONFIG_TEST_KASAN_MODULE`` is a set of KASAN tests that could not be
+converted to KUnit. These tests can be run only as a module with
+``CONFIG_TEST_KASAN_MODULE`` built as a loadable module and
+``CONFIG_KASAN`` built-in. The type of error expected and the
+function being run is printed before the expression expected to give
+an error. Then the error is printed, if found, and that test
+should be interpretted to pass only if the error was the one expected
+by the test.
