NetBSD has an extensive test suite that tests native kernel and userland code. NetBSD can run Linux binaries under emulation (notably on x86, but other platforms such as ARM have some support too). The Linux emulation is not covered by the test suite. It should be possible to run an appropriate subset of the tests when compiled as Linux binaries.

The project could be completed in a number of steps:

It may also be instructive to look at the Linux Test Project.

The project would initially be focussed on x86 (amd64 and i386).
