Is this a standard thing? Or, did you change the patch significantly
enough that "Co-authored-by:" is no longer appropriate?

I could see tests outside of the t208* range possibly having
value in interacting with parallel checkout in the future.

Perhaps:

A usage comment is typically helpful for these helpers:

# set_checkout_config <workers> <threshold>
# sets global config values to use the given number of
# workers when the given threshold is met.

This simpler doc style works, too.

I wonder if this should be a "test_when_finished rm -f trace" being
recorded earlier in the step. It would also benefit from using a more
specific name than "trace". Something like "trace-test-checkout-workers"
would be unlikely to collide with someone else's trace.

Add usage of a repo in $1?

An interesting set of changes. What about a directory/file conflict?

Something like this might be useful:

 # - f/t (file):   deleted
 # - f (file):     created

in fact, it could be interesting to have a file conflict with each
of these types, such as the symlink 'e' and the submodule 'd'.

While we are at it, what about a symlink/submodule conflict? I know
it makes the test bigger, but doing everything simultaneously through
a carefully designed repository helps prevent test case bloat.

> +test_expect_success SYMLINKS 'setup repo for checkout with various types of changes' '

Could we split this setup step into two parts? Once could
set up everything except the symlinks and would not require
the SYMLINKS prereq. We could then have another test with
the SYMLINKS prereq that extends B1 and B2 to have symlinks
and their conflicts. The remaining tests would work on any
platform without needing the SYMLINKS prereq.

I see all these tests are very similar. Perhaps group
them to demonstrate their differences?

parallel_test_case () {
	test_expect_success "$1" "
		cp -R various $2 &&
		set_checkout_config $3 $4 &&
		test_checkout_workers $5 \
			git -C $2 checkout --recurse-submodules B2 &&
		verify_checkout $2
	"
}

parallel_test_case 'sequential checkout' \
	various_sequential 1 0 0
parallel_test_case 'parallel checkout' \
	various_parallel 2 0 2
parallel_test_case 'fallback to sequential checkout (threshold)' \
	various_sequential_fallback 2 100 0

Doing a similar grouping for the clone case might be interesting,
if only for the possible future where more customization might be
necessary.

Since the clone case is only caring about the contents at B2, it
is good that B2 contains one of each type of entry.

I see SYMLINKS is not necessary here due to creating a new repo.
Still better to not have the prereq when not necessary.

This test can continue to require SYMLINKS.
