What, no! If it's a bug, that kselftest points out, great, it's up to
stable or a vendor to backport that fix if they want it.

Again, it's just like any other test suite, look at xfstests, no one
gets mad when it adds new tests that fail on old kernels, due to bugs
there, right?

That's up to the stable maintainers or the vendors that maintain their
own kernel trees.
