Yea. I'm thinking at this point I'm fine with dropping the attempt to
keep kselftest and my external timekeeping tests in sync.
Though something that might be nice however is having some place that
keeps tarball releases of kselftest around? As it would make pulling
tests onto a target machine a bit easier. Does that already exist?
