Thanks for this. It's nice to have a summary of results.

The lkdtm module was specifically written for the certain
distributions. Later we thought it will be useful for mainline
kernels also. Now that the tests could be used with mainline
kernels we probably could change the tests to use the lkdtm
module from kernel[instead of using the tools/lkdtm modules],
if running the tests on kernel.org kernels. Just a thought.
It should be easy to change insmod to modprobe in tests file. Can tools/lkdtm be useful in future? Or they have something RH/SUSE specific?
