There are many ways to run xfstests, but I usually use kvm-xfstests.  See the
command to run the encryption tests here:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/filesystems/fscrypt.html#tests

More details about kvm-xfstests are here:

https://github.com/tytso/xfstests-bld/blob/master/Documentation/kvm-quickstart.md
https://github.com/tytso/xfstests-bld/blob/master/Documentation/kvm-xfstests.md

But if you want to run tests which aren't included in the prebuilt kvm-xfstests
test appliance yet (such as the test for this patch), it's not quite as
straightforward since you'll also need to build your own test appliance:

https://github.com/tytso/xfstests-bld/blob/master/Documentation/building-rootfs.md

Also note that this test will require both xfstests and xfsprogs updates:
