So do you mean, for example, if a kernel version check fails, don't
skip immediately. Instead continue to run the test, and if something
actually fails, then return with a SKIP.

And conversely, for a kernel version that passes the included check, no
other condition can return a SKIP?  (What about something like missing
packages?)
