That's true. I didn't exercise the high-level API. I can cover that.

I can only speak for myself. Funnily enough I think I've switched from
CHECK to CHECK_FAIL when I touched on BPF flow dissector last time [0].

CHECK needs and "external" duration variable to be in scope, and so it
was suggested to me that if I'm not measuring run-time with
bpf_prog_test_run, CHECK_FAIL might be a better choice.

CHECK is also perhaps too verbose because it emits a log message on
success (to report duration, I assume).

You have a better overview of all the tests than me, but if I had the
cycles I'd see if renaming CHECK to something more specific, for those
test that actually track prog run time, can work.
