Right. Let's not worry about global file. Let's just use /tmp/$$BASENAME_TEST
for now. Something like the below diff:


diff --git a/tools/testing/selftests/lib.mk b/tools/testing/selftests/lib.mk

else \
- 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;\

fi; \
done;
endef
