Thanks Shuah! Presumably I should still submit the talk on the website (however, it looks like the Testing Microconference isn't available as a track option yet...)? Or is it okay if I just post the proposal here? Also, for the framing of the talk (assuming people are indeed interested). I figure people will want an intro along with some background context, and a discussion of future work. Nevertheless, would people like more of a demo talk or more of an audience driven discussion on where we should go and what we should do? Or something else? Really, I am open to talk about whatever everyone else wants. For context on KUnit, you can read the LWN article about it here, or you can see the current version of the patchset here.
