Thanks Shuah!

Presumably I should still submit the talk on the website (however, it
looks like the Testing Microconference isn't available as a track option
yet...)? Or is it okay if I just post the proposal here?

Also, for the framing of the talk (assuming people are indeed
interested). I figure people will want an intro along with some
background context, and a discussion of future work. Nevertheless, would
people like more of a demo talk or more of an audience driven discussion
on where we should go and what we should do? Or something else? Really,
I am open to talk about whatever everyone else wants.

For context on KUnit, you can read the LWN article about it here[1], or
you can see the current version of the patchset here[2].

Thanks!
