Do you ask me to write "unit tests" to test all the aspects of
asn1 compiler and parsers that I have not developed any part of
and that are not changed from the original?
Doesn't make sense.

There are lots of examples, one is the original RSA routines, as I said,
which have not direct-linked tests and are only tested by vboot.py.

All what you need to know is that the patch set will generate
and provide x509 parser and pkcs7 parser as a result of build process.

I will a few lines of README.asn1compiler to describe that.
