Boot testing is already hard to do well on a wide variety of
hardware. However it is only scratching the surface of the
kernel code base. To take projects such as Kernel CI to the next
level and increase coverage, functional tests are becoming the
next big thing on the list. Large test suites that run close to
the hardware are very hard to tame. Some projects such as
ezbench could become very helpful outside of its initial
territory that is Intel graphics. But to start with, let us try
to define the problem space and take a look at the state of the
art in this area to then come up with ideas that apply to
upstream kernel functional testing.
