Note, this was the motivation for pushing ktest. To get more people an
easy setup to automate their tests. It wasn't to replace a setup if you
already had one. It was to get new people to have a drop in tool that
they can easily run randconfig tests or other things on their kernels.

It was to try to get that SETI mentality wrt kernel testing.
