Would it be possible to put them in the kernel tree somewhere, for

Huh. I guess its possible. However I'd like to avoid starting yet-another-testing-framework.

The idea of keeping kernel tests close to the code could be nice since it might avoid the bit-rot many testing suites get where bad tests start failing and no one cares enough or has the context to sort out fixing false positives.

But looking at the ltp project page, it seems there have been some good cleanups in fixing known failures since last I looked (4 or so years back). So it might be LTP is the proper place for this.
