I'm not sure it's worth fixing the tests under tools/lib/lockdep since
keeping these tests working requires modifying the headers under
tools/lib/lockdep/include/ every time the kernel headers under include/
are changed. How about removing tools/lib/lockdep entirely and
converting these lockdep tests to the KUnit framework? KUnit is based on
UML and I think that's a much more robust approach. For more information
about KUnit, see also
