- Subject: How to handle long running tests in nptl.
the nptl tests are currently running in sequence. Some of them are
running very long:
The listed tests are responsible for over two minutes of runtime of
"make check". They all are running a test in a loop for a large amount
of iterations or seconds in order to trigger e.g. a race condition.
How to handle those long running tests with respect of "make check" runtime?
- reduce runtime by reducing number of iterations or seconds
- move those tests to "make xcheck"
- reduce runtime while running "make check" and rerun with unchanged
runtime in "make xcheck"
- change nothing
- other ideas?
