I tested by running all of posix/ and libio/ tests inside the container,
decided to also add /bin/echo and /bin/true since they were (1) used,
and (2) trivial.  Let the slippery slope begin :-)

Changes since V4:

	add shell-container, echo-container, true-container helper programs

	add $($*-ENV) to test-container rules

Add test-in-container infrastructure

	* Makefile (testroot.pristine): New rules to initialize the
	test-in-container "testroot".
	* Makerules (all-testsuite): Add tests-container.
	* Rules (tests): Add tests-container.
	(binaries-all-tests): Likewise.
	(tests-container): New, run these tests in the testroot container.
	* support/Makefile (others): Add *-container, support_paths.c,
	xmkdirp, and links-dso-program.
	* support/links-dso-program-c.c: New.
	* support/links-dso-program.cc: New.
	* support/test-container.c: New.
	* support/shell-container.c: New.
	* support/echo-container.c: New.
	* support/true-container.c: New.
	* support/mkdirp.c: New.
	* support/support_paths.c: New.
	* support/support.h: Add mkdirp() and support paths prototypes.

* nss/tst-nss-test3.c: Convert to test-in-container.
* nss/tst-nss-test3.root/: New.

I don't think this is an "RFC" anymore :-)

I think we should consider this a full [PATCH].

You've done way more work than anyone ever does in an RFC!

Thank you for this.

+/* Running a test in a container is tricky.  There are two main
+   categories of things to do:
+
+   1. "Once" actions, like setting up the container and doing an
+      install into it.
+
+   2. "Per-test" actions, like copying in support files and
+      configuring the container.
+
+
+   "Once" actions:
+
+   * mkdir $buildroot/testroot.pristine/
+   * install into it
+   * rsync to $buildroot/testroot.root/
+
+   "Per-test" actions:
+   * maybe rsync to $buildroot/testroot.root/
+   * copy support files and test binary
+   * chroot/unshare
+   * set up any mounts (like /proc)
+
+   Magic files:
+
+   For test $srcdir/foo/mytest.c we look for $srcdir/foo/mytest.root and, if found...
+
+   * mytest.root/ is rsync'd into container
+   * mytest.root/preclean.txt causes fresh rsync (with delete) before test if present
+   * mytest.root/files.txt has a list of files to copy - TBD
+     ($B/ or $S/ for build and source directories)
+       syntax:
+         # comment
+         mv FILE FILE
+	 cp FILE FILE
+	 rm FILE
+	 FILE must start with $B/, $S/, $I/, $L/, or /
+	  (expands to build dir, source dir, install dir, library dir
+	   (in container), or container's root)
+   * mytest.root/postclean.txt causes fresh rsync (with delete) after test if present
+
+   Note that $srcdir/foo/mytest.files may be used instead of a
+   files.txt in the sysroot, if there is no other reason for a sysroot.
+
+   Design goals:
+
+   * independent of other packages which may not be installed (like
+     rsync or Docker, or even "cp")
+
+   * Simple, easy to review code (i.e. prefer simple naive code over
+     complex efficient code)
+
+   TBD:
+
+   * The current implementation is not parallel-make-safe, as one test
+     could be modifying the chroot while another is running against
+     it.
