At the same time, I don't think it needs to be even that fancy. Even
if it's not a stable branch that gets shared between different
developers, it would be good to just have people do a "let's try this"
throw-away branch to use the kunit functionality and verify that
"yeah, this is fairly convenient for ext4".
It doesn't have to be merged in that form, but just confirmation that
the infrastructure is helpful before it gets merged would be good.
