There isn't any configuration where most of it can plausibly be tested at
present, when functional Hurd support involves 86 unmerged topic branches.
It has been tested on one architecture using the Linux kernel, which is
sufficient to cover its effects on functional platforms.
I don't think it's reasonable to block any patches at all on testing on
Hurd until the Hurd support in mainline is working without any out-of-tree
I consider it important to make it easier for people to find their way
around the source tree.
