I gave some tips about kvm-xfstests in my other reply:

However, please note that xfstests is really about filesystem testing (including
fscrypt), not about testing the keyrings subsystem itself.  So while you're
certainly welcome to run the fscrypt tests, for most patches you'll encounter as
a keyrings maintainer the keyutils testsuite will be more useful.
