Did so, and here comes the result: :)

This may become fragile (and it already is on my hacked system). The
reason: plans exist to allow compiling bb into multiple binaries again,
thus sh will not be linked to busybox, but to ash e.g.

What about this:

withBusybox=0
if sh --help 2>&1| grep -q BusyBox; then
    withBusybox=1;
# else running a real /bin/sh (bash) shell
fi
echo withBusybox is $withBusybox


When using this variant, I get the following messages:

> /bin/xeno-test: /bin/xeno-test: 177: zgrep: not found

What about zcat | grep instead? Moreover, I failed to find a zgrep bb
applet. Did you copy that stuff on your box?

getopts is off by default in bb. Is this essential for xeno-test? Then
you should state this requirement somewhere.

I guess this comes from the missing getopts...


Regarding workload: I typically run the cache calibrator [1] in a look,
together with some I/O load (hard disk where available, flood ping). The
loop looks like

while true; do calibrator <box-MHz> 8M /tmp/; done

<box-MHz> should be derivable from /proc/cpuinfo with some scripting. We
may just check if an inclusion of the calibrator source code is possible
(license terms...).


Lacking time right now, otherwise I would have hacked further to make
the test run. This test could be quite interesting for us here to
quickly check our processing boxes' hardware and to test new Xenomai
versions for elementary regressions when upgrading production systems
(fortunately only their CF-cards). Looking forward!
