  1. 3.0-testing (Ian Pratt)
* New regression test suite. We're working on a sophisticated test
suite that will run a wide range of benchmarks and test programs
[lmbench, ttcp, ltp, kernbench, reaim, postmark, osdb/postgresql, ace
tcp_test, specjbb, tbench, dbench, crashme] under a variety of
situations [UP and SMP domains, multiple concurrent domains,
communicating domains etc.] The final phase of the test will also
exercise the tools, adding/removing CPUs, adding/removing memory,
migrating domains etc. This is going to be a really good work out for
xen and guest kernels. Stay tuned...

(Sorry about the strange reply/subject.  It appears gmane is down (which
my usual method for followup since I subscribe to the digest version.)

Sounds cool!  Will this be available for others to use?

The idea is it will eventually be released, but we're still developing it atm.

It would be great if the suite is well parameterized so it is possible
to easily turn off individual tests or classes of tests.  Then it
can be used by ports that are not as far along as x86.

Thats the idea yeah.
