I would suggest to put it into lib/livepatch/ subdirectory. I hope
that we will add more tests in the long term.

s/livepatch-test/livepatch-test.sh/ ?

It seems to be common to add .sh suffix for bash script names.

These 20 seconds kept me in a tense (waiting for the final result)
for a very long time ;-) Is there any particular reason for such
a long delay?

I wonder if we need a delay at all or if let's say 2 seconds might
be enough.

I was a bit surprised when seeing this way of checking results.
But on the other hand, it looks pretty effective, especially for
the callbacks. And the 3rd look, any patched function might write
something into the log when called.

I like it. Let's see how it works in the long term. But I am rather
positive.

Thanks a lot for working on it.

Best Regards,
Petr
