The word "standard" seems to be over-stating things.  The
documentation currently states, "they _usually_ have config options
ending in ``_KUNIT_TEST'' (emphasis mine).  I can imagine that there
might be some useful things we can do from a tooling perspective if we
do standardize things, but if you really want to make it a "standard",
we should first update the manpage to say so, and explain why (e.g.,
so that we can easily extract out all of the kunit test modules, and
perhaps paint a vision of what tools might be able to do with such a

Alternatively, the word "standard" could perhaps be changed to
"convention", which I think more accurately defines how things work at
the moment.

Also, "adhear" is not the correct spelling; the correct spelling is
"adhere" (from the Latin verb "adhaerere", "to stick", as in "to hold
fast or stick by as if by gluing", which then became "to bind oneself
to the observance of a set of rules or standards or practices").
