To run tests on the entire Emacs tree, run "make check" from the
top-level directory. Most tests are in the directory
"test/". From the "test/" directory, run "make
<filename>" to run the tests for <filename>.el(c). See
"test/Makefile" for more information.
Tests which are tagged ":expensive-test" are enabled additionally, if
you run "make check-expensive" from the top-level directory. "make
<filename>" as mentioned above incorporates expensive tests for
<filename>.el(c). You can also define any ert selector on the command
line. So "make check SELECTOR=nil" is equivalent to "make
check-expensive".
You could also use predefined selectors of the Makefile. "make
<filename> SELECTOR='$(SELECTOR_DEFAULT)'" runs all tests for
<filename>.el(c) except the tests tagged as expensive.
Selectors can be defined with different methods, see (info "(ert)Test
Selectors") or
https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/ert/Test-Selectors.html

could use a regexp: "make <filename> SELECTOR='\"foo$$\"'" .
