test_ioctl() gets the process group ID of the foreground process group on /dev/tty. If Python is in foreground, it's equal to the process group ID (os.getpgrp()) or to the session ID (os.getsid(0)). If Python is in background, yes, the test fail.

test_ioctl_mutate() contains test_ioctl() but also ensure that the input buffer is not modified by the ioctl.

If you would like to run in background, you will have to disable these 2 tests: ignore the tests if the process is in background. Detect if a process is in foreground or background is exactly the goal of test_ioctl()...
