we're currently not running these, but if I may offer a suggestion from my
experience: It's easier for people to pick up testing when it's already a
part of a test suite, rather than a separate test that they have to figure
out a) even exists b) how to run it

There are large test suites like LTP, kselftests and xfstests that most
people are aware of, but then you get a lot of smaller tests or random
scripts that, unless you're already familiar with the subsystem or get
them linked directly, people won't find easily. And if a CI system wants
to start running those tests, they most likely need to create a wrapper
to handle test specifics, while the enablement via a larger test suite
is way easier (as they can already handle it and all that's needed is
to enable that specific test subset).

Consolidating smaller tests into LTP or kselftests, where applicable,
would make the testing process more streamlined and easier to follow
for new folks too, as the expected testing could be unified across
subsystems and there would be no surprises.
