Several weeks ago I read about
and recognized the vision is very similar to what we exercise for
several years in the AMD Operating System Research Center when writing
functional tests for Linux, Xen, and KVM.
After some polishing I just submitted an
RFC: A common test container
I explicitely had the Fedora Kernel Testing Initiative in mind, I even
integrated a last missing part from the fedora testing vision into the
proposed lib: the ability to skip tests based on their "criticality
But from several years of experience with Linux testing I think the best
place is to put a common stub *in* the kernel, and be able to proceed
If you are interested feel free to join the discussion on LKML, or if
you prefer tell me to forward it here.
