Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 1/2] kunit: Support for Parameterized Testing

I just tried to give this a spin on some of my tests and noticed some
more things (apologies for the multiple rounds of comments):

This should be singular, i.e. "param_value", since the generator only
generates 1 value for each test. Whether or not that value is a
pointer that points to more than 1 value or is an integer etc. is
entirely test-dependent.

I think, per your comment above, this should be named "param_index".
Also, I would suggest removing the mention of "array" in the comment,
because the parameters aren't dependent on use of an array.

Is this the only place where the param index is used? It might be
helpful to show the index together with the test-case name, otherwise
we get a series of test cases in the output which are all named the
same which can be confusing.

Looking forward to v4. :-)
