    If possible, it could be a potential topic for lsf/mm raid discussion as
    Coly suggested
    in previous mail.

    Is current test can run the test for different raid level, say, "./test
    --raidtype=raid1" could
    execute all the *r1* tests, does it make sense to do it if we don't
    support it now.
