Use the newly added suite_{init,exit} support for suite-wide init and
cleanup. This avoids the unsupported method by which the test used to do
suite-wide init and cleanup (avoiding issues such as missing TAP
headers, and possible future conflicts).

This patch should go on the -kselftest/kunit branch, where this new
support currently lives, including a similar change to the KFENCE test.

Thanks! This is working for me. I ran it as a builtin using kunit_tool
under (I had to add an x86_64-smp architecture), then use:
./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --arch=x86_64-smp
--kconfig_add=CONFIG_KCSAN=y --kconfig_add=CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL=y
--timeout 900 'kcsan'

To add the x86_64 smp architecture, I added a file
./tools/testing/kunit/qemu_configs/x86_64-smp.py, which was a copy of
x86_64.py but with 'CONFIG_SMP=y' added to XXXX and '-smp 16' added to
YYYY.
It took about 10 minutes on my system, so the default 5 minute timeout
definitely wasn't enough.

(It's maybe worth noting that kunit_tool's output is pretty ugly when
this isn't running on an SMP system, as the skipped subtests -- plus
the "no tests run" errors -- take up a lot of space on the screen.
That's possibly something we should consider when we look further into
how the kunit_tool NO_TEST result works. Not really related to this
change (or even this test) though.)

No complaints about the patch: I'm just really glad to see things
migrate off custom init/exit code!

The trick to reduce the KCSAN test time is to set
CONFIG_KCSAN_REPORT_ONCE_IN_MS=100 or lower. So should you consider a
special KUnit config, I'd add that.

(Whoops, forgot to copy this in properly: XXXX was 'kconfig' and YYYY
was 'extra_qemu_params'.)

The x86_64-smp.py file ends up looking like this:
---8<---
from ..qemu_config import QemuArchParams

QEMU_ARCH = QemuArchParams(linux_arch='x86_64',
kconfig='''
CONFIG_SERIAL_8250=y
CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_SMP=y
''',
qemu_arch='x86_64',
kernel_path='arch/x86/boot/bzImage',
kernel_command_line='console=ttyS0',
extra_qemu_params=['-smp 16'])

Ah: it might be worth adding a dedicated kcsan .kunitconfig, in which
case this would be helpful. It'd also need the SMP qemu config above
before it's particularly useful, and 16 was a randomly-picked number
of CPUs -- not sure if there's a better default.

If you're likely to use it, though, we can definitely add it in. I'm
sure there'll eventually be other uses for an SMP config under
kunit_tool, too.

I currently have some other frankenscript to run it, but I wouldn't
mind just using kunit_tool to do so. So having real SMP support there
would be very useful.

Thanks,

You'd want ['-smp', '16'].
Otherwise this config will be broken by

Adding '-smp 16' and CONFIG_KCSAN_REPORT_ONCE_IN_MS=100 as you
suggested below, I was able to get it running under kunit.py with the
following results:
Testing complete. Passed: 168, Failed: 0, Crashed: 0, Skipped: 1, Errors: 0
Elapsed time: 92.642s total, 0.003s configuring, 4.592s building,
88.009s running

Nice!
