Is this in C/C++ or sh?  With atf-c-api(3), you can call atf_expect()
instead of atf_require().  That way the test will continue even after
one of the expectations failed.  If multiple expectations fail, then I
think kyua will print an error message for each failed expectation.  I
could be wrong however.  Also, I don't think that equivalent
functionality exists in atf-sh-api(3).

Apart from that, you pretty much have to write multiple test cases.
Note that separate test cases run in separate processes.  If your for
loop is very long and this is a C test program, using multiple test
cases will be much slower than using a single test case with multiple
