I think tests should live alongside the code that they test, so if I
understand what you are saying, then I agree. Where do you think KTF
should go then?

Yep, Luis Chamberlain and I have been discussing this for a while (I
should probably try to open up that conversation and add you to it);
it's a very tricky problem. I think that in the long term a good goal
is to have a way to express code dependencies separate from the
configuration system, but that would probably mean some substantial
changes to Kbuild and friends. Even then, we have all these macros
that generate different code (not just on/off) depending on how the
kernel is configured.

What do you mean by "native"? Just having the tests be more aware of the code?
