Per the comment at the top of Lib/test/, FlushKey, LoadKey, and SaveKey are currently untested.

I have a minimal patch worked up. I'll expand on it and upload shortly.

LoadKey and SaveKey require special privileges which need to manually acquired, likely via ctypes. #1578269 has some code which does this for os.symlink privileges and it's about to go into py3k, so I'll try to piggyback off of that.

I'm working on this issue and I have a minimal patch ready, but it depends on issue21518, which proposes adding UnloadKey to winreg, so that we can unload the keys mounted with LoadKey. Also, that issue adds a mechanism for privilege acquisition, which I'll utilize for this issue.
