Yes you are right. Yes I see that you are redirecting all
output from the test with (./$$BASENAME_TEST > /dev/null 2>&1)
My bad.

cd `dirname $$TEST` > /dev/null; (./$$BASENAME_TEST > /dev/null 2>&1 && echo "ok 1..$$test_num selftests: $$BASENAME_TEST [PASS]") || echo "not ok 1..$$test_num selftests: $$BASENAME_TEST [FAIL]"; cd - > /dev/null;\

However, it also suppresses important error messages from individual tests
like in the case of rtnetlink.sh from your before and after output.

User knows the test failed, but doesn't know why. One way to solve
the problem is creating a temp file with the output for reference.
Something like:

(./$$BASENAME_TEST > /tmp/kselftest.out 2>&1


Without the change:

ok 1..10 selftests: netdevice.sh [PASS]
selftests: rtnetlink.sh
========================================
RTNETLINK answers: Operation not supported
Cannot find device "test-dummy0"
FAIL: cannot add dummy interface
not ok 1..11 selftests: rtnetlink.sh [FAIL]

selftests: rtnetlink.sh
========================================
not ok 1..11 selftests: rtnetlink.sh [FAIL]

thanks,
