Sorry to jump in now; I thought Vitor's reply with a link to the new
proposed documentation[1] addressed this. The naming convention issue
came up about a month ago[2]. The people in the discussion (including
myself) came to an agreement on _kunit.c. That being said, the
documentation hasn't been accepted yet, so if you really feel strongly
about it, now is the time to change it.

All that being said, I would rather not discuss that issue here for
the benefit of the participants in the preceding discussions.

I posted lore links for the relevant threads, which should be easy
enough to In-Reply-To your way into. Nevertheless, if it makes it
easier, let me know and I can CC you into the discussions.
