Unfortunately kselftests have lots of users that want different things. A recent
request is to use TAP13 format for output for external parsers to be able to parse.
That is what this change to add TAP13 header does.

The output you are seeing is the TAP 13 format to indicate the test has passed.

The right fix would be to suppress the Pass/Fail from the individual shell script
and have the shell script exit with error code. kselftest lib.mk will handle the
error code and print out pass/fail like it is doing now.

Using the common logic will help avoid duplicate code in tests/test scripts and
also makes the pass/fail messages consistent.

In the following output the individual test output can be eliminated since lib.mk
run_tests does that for you. In addition, you will also get a count of tests at
the end of the run of all tests in a test directory.

TAP version 13
selftests: run_netsocktests
========================================
--------------------
running socket test
--------------------
[PASS]
ok 1..1 selftests: run_netsocktests [PASS]
selftests: run_afpackettests
========================================
must be run as root
ok 1..2 selftests: run_afpackettests [PASS]
selftests: test_bpf.sh
========================================
test_bpf: [FAIL]
not ok 1..3 selftests: test_bpf.sh [FAIL]
selftests: netdevice.sh
========================================
SKIP: Need root privileges
ok 1..4 selftests: netdevice.sh [PASS]

If you eliminate that you will just see the common lib.mk results.

TAP version 13
selftests: run_netsocktests
========================================
ok 1..1 selftests: run_netsocktests [PASS]
selftests: run_afpackettests
========================================
must be run as root
ok 1..2 selftests: run_afpackettests [PASS]
========================================
selftests: test_bpf.sh
========================================
not ok 1..3 selftests: test_bpf.sh [FAIL]
selftests: netdevice.sh
========================================
SKIP: Need root privileges
ok 1..4 selftests: netdevice.sh [PASS]


If you would like to fix the duplicate output, please send me patches
to remove pass/fail output strings from tests instead. It is on my
todo to do that this release.


thanks,
