Testing is important. That's a well known fact that very few developers will dispute. Why is then so little kernel code covered by a clear testing strategy ? Through real stories about test plans (or the lack thereof), this talk will convince you that none of your excuses for not having a test strategy are valid. You will learn how various parts of the Linux kernel have approached testing and how you can benefit from their experience. The talk will use the V4L2 subsystem to demonstrate the use of test tools, but will be applicable to kernel development in general.
