Right, driver_data.sh is not to stress test a target file, it *builds*
tests and uses a temporary directory to avoid interfering with your own
files.

Yes! You can review how it configures a test case to get an idea but the
name change is one, since you are doing it manually you would just avoid
resetting the firmware test path.

We could extend the script with an argument to leave the directory intact
and trust your own file given in an argument, but that would be a new test
case.
