Description David Gow 2019-10-17 21:07:51 UTC
kunit_tool prints an error message when there are missing or wrong entries in the kunitconfig file.

Currently, this message is 'Error:root:Kconfig is not contained in validated .config!' which doesn't describe the issue particularly well.

We should consider improving the message, and possibly adding a list of the invalid entries.

Some of this was done in the old kunit/alpha/master branch in:
https://kunit.googlesource.com/linux/+/1996e6ba3efce20a6a64c527024acbd484db2f9d

David, can you close this?
