Subject: [PATCH 0/2] selftests: Extract and generate stand-alone test list
Date: Fri, 25 Sep 2020 16:45:25 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I really like Hangbin Liu's intent[1] but I think we need to be a little
more clean about the implementation. This extracts from
the Makefile so it can actually be changed without embeds, etc. Instead,
generate the test list into a text file. Everything gets much simpler.

And in patch 2, I add back Hangin Liu's new options (with some extra
added) with knowledge of "collections" (i.e. Makefile TARGETS) and
subtests. This should work really well with LAVA too, which needs to
manipulate the lists of tests being run.
