For this patch, as-is. But we could potentially do better in future --
see below.

[1] https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/dev-tools/kunit/style.html#test-file-and-module-names

Do we eventually want to rename the tests to follow the style
recommendation more closely?

Option 1: Rename the KUnit test to kasan_test.c? And then
also rename test_kasan_module.c -> kasan_module_test.c?  Then the file
names would be mostly consistent with the config names.

Option 2: The style guide [1] also mentions where there are non-KUnit
tests around to use _kunit for KUnit test, and _test (or similar) for
the non-KUnit test. So here we'd end up with kasan_kunit.c and
kasan_test.c. That would get rid of the confusing "module" part. The
config variable could either remain CONFIG_KASAN_MODULE_TEST, or simply
become CONFIG_KASAN_TEST, since we already have CONFIG_KASAN_KUNIT_TEST
to distinguish.

But I won't bikeshed further. If you do a v2, I leave it to your
judgement to decide what is most appropriate.

Thanks,
