If you really want to use xfstests to produce some system stress,
you'd do better to use an XFS filesystem ;)

Nothing indicates an unknown failure...

This is a result of Al fixing the max nested loop depth very early
on in .39, so the test needs to run to deeper nesting depths to
produce ELOOP. So it's a test problem, not a bug.

You need to install libaio and friends so that the binary is
built. We probably need to add a "requires_aio" test option to
detect this situation and not_run the test gracefully.

Like this one does....

Same again.

A typical XFS run gives:

Ran: 001 002 003 004 005 006 007 008 009 010 011 012 013 014 015 016 017 019 020 021 026 027 028 029 030 031 032 033 034 041 042 045 046 047 048 049 050 051 052 053 054 056 061 062 063 064 065 066 067 068 069 070 072 073 074 075 076 077 078 079 083 084 085 086 087 088 089 091 092 096 100 103 104 105 108 109 110 112 113 116 117 118 119 120 121 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 137 138 139 140 141 164 165 166 167 169 170 174 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 186 187 188 189 190 192 193 194 195 196 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250
