Well, it depends.  In this thread, device drivers were
mentioned in particular.  You can't test those in jails
or in virtual machines.

For example, I would like to merge r210819 to stable/8
(it will have to wait until after the freeze, of course).
But I can't easily test it on stable/7 because it's
hardware-related.  So I won't merge it to stable/7.
