This sounds exactly what ktest does. And you can get it from the local
kernel tree today. I even added sample conf files in the 3.5 merge


Which includes a bunch of stuff in the examples/includes directory.


Which holds a bunch of tests to cross-compile most archs.

I guess I should propose talking about how we can incorporate these
various utilities such that everyone can benefit. And to spread the word
about what is out there.
