Linux Test Project June Release Announcement

Marty Ridgeway writes "The Linux Test Project test suite, ltp-20040603, has been released. The latest version of the testsuite contains 2100+ tests for the Linux OS. Our web site also contains other information such as: test results, a Linux test tools matrix, technical papers and HowTos on Linux testing, and a code coverage analysis tool. We encourage the community to post results, and patches, new tests, or comments/questions to to our mailing list.
  • Minor corrections to the NUM_PROCS patch

  • Added the ability to pass NUM_PROCS to the -c option for runalltests.sh
  • Fix genload in runalltests.sh, it was trying to run it in all caps, but the binary is all lower case.
    Should actually run genload now.
  • Patch from Alastair McKinstry to allow LTP to build on Linux/HPPA
  • Changes for parameters passed to aio-sparse for correct offsets and restrictions on sizes.
  • Add new security tests to syscalls testsuite
  • In acl_file_test.c and acl_link_test.c syscalls regarding xattrs are still
    done via syscall, although libc functions are available. Furthermore I found
    out that on older distros for non-intel architectures both attr/xattr.h and
    constants like __NR_getxattr are not available, so in this case the these
    testcases are not built.
  • Updates for the DMPAI testsuite ppc64 support.
  • Fix failure on rwtest versions rwtest03 and rwtest04 due to mmap running out of resources.
  • Made changes to get thread ID vs get PID for NPTL threads for unique filenames where child/parent PIDs are the same.
  • Changes to diotest5 and diotest_routines to eliminate random/intermitant failures on data compare.
  • Fixed memory leak in mmstress testcase.
  • Changed clone02 to use tid instead of pid to eliminate failures on NPTL threads(same PIDs for parent/child)
  • Changed fcntl15 getpid to gettid (syscall(gettid)) to get unique thread ID vs common PID in NPTL threads.
  • Added adp testcases."
