Ask the maintainers!
In an ideal world there would be a directory or package of self tests
associated with the subsystem.

If you have an account on git make a "My work is GPL3" statement file
then clone or fork and add your patch and
add the self test. A personal fork gives you a playground, you can
merge it back or just flush.
