I'm not quite sure what is needed to enable these tests in CI for 13 (assuming we
are running CI in 13?)  Mark created a review to set kern.ipc.tls.enable=1 in the
sysctl settings which I suspect is used now on 13 as well as head?  However, for
13 these tests need ktls_ocf.ko loaded (in head that module doesn't exist and is
instead included as part of the base kernel).  I'm not sure what the best strategy
is here.  Perhaps for 13 we should extend the requires_ktls hook to require the
ktls_ocf module (do we have glue to autoload modules when run under CI?)
