Hi Kemeng,

If you need help running xfstests, I maintain a test appliance which
makes it very easy to run xfstests on development kernels.  Please see:

https://github.com/tytso/xfstests-bld/blob/master/Documentation/kvm-xfstests.md
https://github.com/tytso/xfstests-bld/blob/master/Documentation/kvm-quickstart.md

This test appliance can also be run on Android devices and using
Google Compute Engine; for more information see:

	https://thunk.org/android-xfstests
	https://thunk.org/gce-xfstests

If you're just getting started, I recommend that you start with
kvm-xfstests, and this is the simplest way to get started.

Cheers,
