the kernel syscall interface cannot be emulated in userspace
correctly (clone, signals) and qemu-user has other bugs on
various archs so it's not a reasonable design

it might make sense to separate out the "safe" tests
(no threads or fork, no filesystem modifications, etc)
so one can run those tests more quickly/easily

but in case of release testing you want to run all the tests
reliably anyway so there it does not make much sense
