2022-05-02kunit: add ability to specify suite-level init and exit functionsDaniel Latypov1-8/+11
KUnit has support for setup/cleanup logic for each test case in a suite. But it lacks the ability to specify setup/cleanup for the entire suite itself. This can be used to do setup that is too expensive or cumbersome to do for each test. Or it can be used to do simpler things like log debug information after the suite completes. It's a fairly common feature, so the lack of it is noticeable. Some examples in other frameworks and languages: * https://docs.python.org/3/library/unittest.html#setupclass-and-teardownclass * https://google.github.io/googletest/reference/testing.html#Test::SetUpTestSuite Meta: This is very similar to this patch here: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kselftest/20210805043503.20252-3-bvanassche@acm.org/ The changes from that patch: * pass in `struct kunit *` so users can do stuff like `kunit_info(suite, "debug message")` * makes sure the init failure is bubbled up as a failure * updates kunit-example-test.c to use a suite init * Updates kunit/usage.rst to mention the new support * some minor cosmetic things * use `suite_{init,exit}` instead of `{init/exit}_suite` * make suite init error message more consistent w/ test init * etc. Signed-off-by: Daniel Latypov <dlatypov@google.com> Reviewed-by: David Gow <davidgow@google.com> Reviewed-by: Brendan Higgins <brendanhiggins@google.com> Signed-off-by: Shuah Khan <skhan@linuxfoundation.org>

2020-12-01Documentation: kunit: provide guidance for testing many inputsDaniel Latypov1-6/+77
usage.rst goes into a detailed section about faking out classes, but currently lacks wording about how one might idiomatically test a range of inputs. Add a new chapter for "Common Patterns" and group "Isolating behvaior" and this new section under there. Give an example of how one might test a hash function via macros/helper funcs and a table-driven test and very briefly discuss pros and cons. Also highlight the KUNIT_EXPECT_*_MSG() variants (that aren't mentioned elsewhere [1]) which are particularly useful in these situations. It is also criminally underused at the moment, only appearing in 2 tests (both written by people involved in KUnit).
