Due to the size and difference in test content/coverage, I pulled lib/libc and lib/msun from bother sources and integrated them into Kyua. What I did was I put the netbsd testcases into the tests/ subdirectory and put the FreeBSD test suites into a tests/legacy subdirectory. The goal was that the legacy directory would eventually be converted over to atf testcases and then could be removed once the conversion was complete.

I don't understand.  What did you put in tests/legacy?  If you're just
copying from tools/regression, why not simply leave them in place
until you convert them to ATF?
