The KUNIT macros create all these individually reasonably small

seems to be a combination of luck and various config options.
I have been concerned about these macros creeping in for a while.
I will take a closer look and work with Brendan to come with a plan
to address it.
I've previously sent patches to turn off the structleak plugin for
any kunit test file to work around this, but only a few of those patches
got merged and new files have been added since. It would
definitely help to come up with a proper fix, but my structleak-disable
hack should be sufficient as a quick fix.
