I've checked in the scripts into my xfstests-bld repository.  You can
get the repository here:


This is how I build xfstests and its dependencies hermetically, so
that even if you are forced (as I was for a while) to build on an
ancient enterprise or LTS distribution, it will build cleanly.
(Xfstests requires the libraries in xfsprogs newer than what was
shipped with LTS 10.04, and I'd guess RHEL 6 and definitely RHEL 5.)

The scripts that run in the VM can be found in the directory
kvm-autorun; they are installed into a file system built using
debootstrap.  The scripts I use to kick off kvm in the host OS can be
found in the directory kvm-xfstests.

Sorry for the delay; it took me a while to get things packaged up
cleanly.  Unfortunately I can't just ship you the root_fs.img due of
GPL licensing issues (figuring what all of the necessary source files
that I'd have to ship that correspond to the application image is a
huge pain in the ass).  One of these days I'll create a shell script
that runs debootsrap and automatically sets up the root_fs.img for the
VM for people building the VM while running Debian or Ubuntu ---
unless someone beats me to it first (hint, hint :-).
