Just a heads up.

The test framework as been extended to better support two 32/64 bit cases:


This is the case where a 64-bit funit test-case is explicitly testing 
interactions involving both 32-bit and 64-bit test programs.  For 
instance, the sequence of 64-bit program execs 32-bit program execs 
64-bit program.

Such tests use Config.getPkgLib32File and Config.getPkgLib64File (see 
frysk.testbed.ExecCommand) to get 32-bit or 64-bit variants of a test 

The new guard missing32and64() is available to confirm that the test is 
possible (for instance, a 32-bit funit does not support and hence should 
skip such a test).


This the case where a 64-bit funit test-case is (unknowingly) being 
tested against a 32-bit test programs.

Such tests use Config.getPkgLibFile() (which returns the applicable 
32-bit or 64-bit program).

The new guard unresolvedOn32On64(BUG) is available for tests that work 
when pure 32-on-32 and 64-on-64 but have problems when 32-on-64.

In addition, funit (TestRunner) has been modified so that it defaults to 
running combined 32-and-64 tests (previously it skipped them); the 
<<-arch 32>> and <<-arch 64>> options can be used to override this.  For 
instance, on a 64-bit system which does not have 32-bit test programs 
installed <<funit -arch 64>> should be specified and will cause 
"32-and-64" tests to be skipped.
