Sure, I can certainly look into that, though I wonder if we should
consider another possibility - should kunit have its own sysctl table for
things like configuring timeouts? I can look at adding a patch for that
prior to the module patch so the issues with exporting the hung task
timeout would go away. Now the reason I suggest this isn't as much a hack
to solve this specific problem, rather it seems to fit better with the
longer-term intent expressed by the comment around use of the field (at
least as I read it, I may be wrong).

Exporting the symbol does allow us to piggy-back on an existing value, but
maybe we should support out our own tunable "kunit_timeout_secs" here?
Doing so would also lay the groundwork for supporting other kunit
tunables in the future if needed. What do you think?

Many thanks for the review! I've got an updated patchset almost
ready with the symbol lookup stuff removed; the above is the last issue
outstanding from my side.

Thanks!
