[RFC PATCH 0/3] test-lib: add the '--stress' option to help reproduce occasional failures in flaky tests




Inspired by Peff's 'stress' script mentioned in:

  https://public-inbox.org/git/20181122161722.GC28192@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

the last patch in this series brings that functionality to our test
library to help to reproduce failures in flaky tests.  So

  ./t1234-foo --stress
  
will run that test script repeatedly in multiple parallel invocations,
in the hope that the increased load creates enough variance in the
timing of the test's commands that a failure is evenually triggered.


SZEDER Gábor (3):
  test-lib: consolidate naming of test-results paths
  test-lib-functions: introduce the 'test_set_port' helper function
  test-lib: add the '--stress' option to run a test repeatedly under
    load
