That wont work if you cross compile, since you wont run the tests
where you build them.
Then you can argue that we should break it up in a build and run rule.
However, my understanding how people just build and run the the tests
for that particular subsystem that they develop for, like:
make -C tools/testing/selftests/<subsystem>/

Anders
