> The responses from the kernel developers in the room were extremely positive to this new system. Andrew Morton noted he'd received a number of useful reports from the tool. "All contained good information, and all corresponded to issues I felt should be fixed." Others echoed Andrew's comments...Fengguang is seeking further input from kernel developers on how his system could be improved. In particular, he is asking kernel developers for runtime stress and functional test scripts for their subsystems.

Oh man, that's really good! Big respects to Fengguang, Geert, Dave Jones and all the other guys who test, and who also make tools for the rest of us to test with as well.

Will there be a way to include these scripts as a "testconfig" build option so that any test-minded person can run them on their own machine?
