Splitting the test into multiple test cases in KUnit will display the number and name of tests that pass or fail. This will be similar to the lib/list-test.c test as can be seen here: https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/lib/list-test.c. I will work on this for the next version of this patch.
