[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/4] iotests: skip tests with unchanged dependencies

From: John Snow
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/4] iotests: skip tests with unchanged dependencies
Date: Fri, 22 May 2015 16:17:08 -0400

This patchset is a little off the beaten path, but:

Add the ability to skip tests that have already been run whose external
dependencies have remained unchanged since the last test run.

This is useful for, say, re-running a test set to see if a failure was
a one-off or is reproducible by just re-running the last command, which
will skip all the tests that completed, but hitting all the ones that
failed or were not run.

It's also useful for testing patchsets for publication against bisect
problems by only running tests after each patch that have changed anything
worth testing -- for instance, a patch that only changes documentation
is not going to change any of the binaries, so we can skip a large swath
of tests here.

The new feature is, of course, optional and can be invoked with -ts.

For convenience, this branch is available at:
https://github.com/jnsnow/qemu.git branch ch3ck

This version is tagged ch3ck-v1:
