Maksym, you can do the following:

  * Get the ``File System Exerciser'' running on GNU/Hurd (no idea if
    there's any porting required).  The one I linked from
    appears to be the ``definitive version''.

  * Run it on a tmpfs file system and see what happens.

  * For comparison, also run it on an ext2fs file system.  This is for
    comparison, which errors are due to the tmpfs/ext2fs difference, and
    which are due to libdiskfs (used both by tmpfs and ext2fs), etc.  If
    you happen to have a NFS setup at home (only client on GNU Hurd), you
    can also run it on a file system backed by the nfs translator.  If
    you haven't, I (as well as Olaf?) can help with the latter testing.

Of course, you're invited to add notes to these pages.  (In fact, this is
also part of working on a project.)  As always,
