This patch series is a result discussion with Tim Bird about nested TAP header handling. Based on the discussion, I am introducing a environment variable to prevent nested TAP headers. These patches improve the run_tests output and the output from the script generated by emit_tests.
This first patch in this series adds environment variable KSFT_TAP_LEVEL to avoid printing nested TAP headers for each test. lib.mk run_tests target prints TAP header before invoking the test program or test script. Tests need a way to suppress TAP headers if it is already printed out.
This new environment variable adds a way for ksft_print_header() print TAP header only when KSFT_TAP_LEVEL isn't set.
The second patch in this series changes lib.mk run_tests target to set KSFT_TAP_LEVEL before running tests.
The third patch changes Makefile to export KSFT_TAP_LEVEL and adds TAP and KSFT_TAP_LEVEL handling to emit_tests target.
Forth and fifth patches make changes to size and futex tests to prevent nested TAP headers to take advantage of the framework change in the first patch.
