For anything non-trivial I generally test it separately, I simply copy
the function into another .c and use main() as my tester.

This is especially useful if you are doing kernel development or other forms
of development where it is a bit PITA to go through a testing cycle
(kernel panic etc.).

Sometimes it is not easy to abstract the code but in most cases it is doable.
