The configs are in [1] the mount options for adv and bigalloc are in
[2] and [3], respectively.


It shouldn't be terribly difficult for you to use kvm-xfstests on
SuSE, if you just want to try using the test appliance directly.  I'm
happy to update the documentation to include the necessary SuSE
packages needed to run kvm-xfstests; it shouldn't be that hard to
translate them from the Debian prerequisites to SuSE package names.
See [4] for details.


Note: if you want to run tests manually (which can be handy if you
want to try tweaking the tests, just do this:

% kvm-xfstests shell
root@...-xfstests:~# FSTESTSET=ext4/301
root@...-xfstests:~# FSTESTCFG=adv
root@...-xfstests:~# ./

The xfstests installation is in /root/xfstests.  Other valid settings
for FSTESTCFG include: ext4/adv, ext4/all, btrfs/default, btrfs, xfs,
nfs, nfs/loopback_v3, and so on.  See [1] for other fs configs that
you can use for testing.
