src/external/bsd/atf/dist/atf-c: tcr.c tcr.h
src/external/bsd/atf/dist/atf-c++: formats.cpp tests.cpp tests.hpp
Introduce expected failures to atf. They can be used to flag tests
which are known to fail, e.g.:
atf_tc_set_md_var(tc, "xfail", "PR kern/43456");
Expected failures do not count towards the ultimate pass/fail result
from the test run:
pain-rustique:39:~/<2>src/tests/fs/ptyfs> atf-run t_nullpts | atf-report
Tests root: /home/pooka/src/wholesrc2/src/tests/fs/ptyfs
t_nullpts (1/1): 1 test cases
nullrevoke: Expected failure: PR kern/43456
Summary for 1 test programs:
0 passed test cases.
0 failed test cases.
1 expected failures.
0 skipped test cases.
pain-rustique:40:~/<2>src/tests/fs/ptyfs> echo $?
However, an xfail test which passes will count as a failure, i.e.
xfail inverts test case success/fail. This way we can get a better
sense from the ultimate verdict of the NetBSD atf run by seeing if
there were any unexpected failures, i.e. new regressions.
This feature will be present in the upcoming atf 0.10 release,
possibly with finer grained control.
