I don't think so. KASAN actually uses KUnit to test it, and we have
experimented running KASAN alongside other KUnit tests for added
protection and results have looked good.

I would be surprised if there are other CONFIGs other than things
dealing with stack size that don't like KUnit.

I like your suggestion if we find other configs that don't like KUnit,
but I don't think we have seen any others so far, so I think I will
keep it as it is for now.
