I took a brief look at lib/test_user_copy.c, it looks like it doesn't
use TAP formatted output. How do you feel about someone converting
them over to use KUnit? If nothing else, it would be good getting all
the unit-ish tests to output in the same format.

I proposed converting over some of the runtime tests over to KUnit as
a LKMP project (Linux Kernel Mentorship Program) here:

https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/lkmp/lkmp_project_list#convert_runtime_tests_to_kunit_tests

I am curious what you think about this.

Makes sense.

Thanks!
