        !            19: NetBSD has an extensive test suite that tests native kernel and userland
        !            20: code. NetBSD can run Linux binaries under emulation (notably on x86,
        !            21: but other platforms such as ARM have some support too). The Linux emulation
        !            22: is not covered by the test suite. It should be possible to run an
        !            23: appropriate subset of the tests when compiled as Linux binaries.
        !            24: 
        !            25: The project could be completed in a number of steps:
        !            26: 
        !            27: * Determine tests that make sense to run under Linux emulation (e.g. syscalls)
        !            28: * Compile tests on Linux and then run on NetBSD
        !            29: * Add new/altered tests for Linux-specific APIs or features
        !            30: * Build cross-compilation environment to build Linux binaries on NetBSD, to make the test-suite self-hosting
        !            31: * Fix Linux emulation for tests that fail
        !            32: * Use tests to add Linux emulation for syscalls missing (e.g.timer_*)
        !            33: 
        !            34: It may also be instructive to look at the [Linux Test Project](http://linux-test-project.github.io/).
        !            35: 
        !            36: The project would initially be focussed on x86 (amd64 and i386).
