Right, but not all tests require the same enclave. In kselftest
terminology I think you are attempting to force all tests to depend on
the same test fixture. Is it not possible to have a separate "reclaimer"
test fixture that would build an enclave with a large heap and then have
reclaimer tests that exercise it by being tests that are specific to
this "reclaimer fixture"?
