Actually, the problem is not from my Friday changes. I pulled the
initrd's from David's machines. The machine with only 8 failures had
a correct initrd, while the others had an older version that was made
before the init script was made to be +x. Not sure why. He is going
to blow away all of his existing trees today and see if that fixes the
Having the rcS file not +x meant that /proc wasn't being mounted,
which led to many failures. We cleared this up shortly after the
import since a lot of file permissions were lost.

Current versions run in about half the time of 0.3 on my machine.
Also, the current version of the runtest script has a "quick" mode
that only runs a subset of the whole suite, which exercises some key
areas. I definitely think that the mini XenRT should be at least
running the latest quick tests.
