most of their tests are for kernel related features
some of them are pretty outdated (stress testing floppy io..)
and not very high quality (mostly written by ibm folks)
there is a large set of 'openhpi' tests and the entire
posix_testsuit (already audited), there is a fair amount
of network tests, mostly sctp and nfs

it seems a bit messy and not quite what we want
