I was thinking that more complex tests can go into ftrace, and simple
tests can go into basic.

OK, that answers the exit codes (as you also stated below), but what
about the echos themselves?

You mean keep the echos, as they are ignored anyway, but if we add
--keep, then the echos will show? Maybe that option should be -v, like
other tools use for "verbose".

Will update this and others.

Good point. A lot of my test scripts do multiple tests. I think for
putting them into tools/testing/selftests/ftrace, I'll break them up
and make them separate tests. For example, the simple graph filtering
above is an example of something that can go into the basic directory,
but the test against stack tracer should be in ftrace. What do you

OK. Hmm, I wonder if we should make a bunch of functions that the tests
can use. Like a "clear_trace" call that does this. Can we export
functions that this shell will be able to use? When we see lots of
duplicate code we may want to have something like that. Well, for this,
it may not be that big of a deal, because "echo > trace" is rather
simple. But I do have other operations that are a bit more intrusive.
