testing with FreeBSD and Kyua

Hi Craig, et al., 

I'm just finding my way through the FreeBSD testing environment so let me know if this is not the right forum for these questions/observations: 

(1) I have 10.1-RC3 installed and have run vmrun.sh a number of times. I notice the following failure on subsequent invocations: 

vm_open: Invalid argument 

We've seen this error here before in running our UnixWare714+ under bhyve and the development engineer here has addressed this issue by 
adding a one second sleep after destroying a vm instance. 

(2) If I attempt to run two VM's under Bhyve at the same time, I see a vm_run error and the first VM is destroyed: 

vm_run error -1, errno 6 
+ bhyve_exit=1 
+ [ 1 -ne 0 ] 
+ break 
+ /usr/sbin/bhyvectl --vm=freebsd-test --destroy 
+ exit 1 

I know we are allowing multiple VM's in our UnixWare714+ under bhyve environment and was wondering if this is supposed to be allowed in FreeBSD. 

(3) After running the kyua suite ("kyua test" command), I have output indicating 4 failures. 

I have gone to the 


site and searched for the failures I've seen to see if they have been previously reported. 

I've seen: 

-- bin/kill/grep-j_test:main - Bug 191019 already reported 

-- l couldn't find bug reports for these: 

-- local/atf/atf-c/macros_test:use -> failed: Build of macros_h_test.c failed; some macros in atf-c/macros.h are broken [0.022s] 

-- local/kyua/testers/run_test:fork_wait__unprivileged_group -> failed: testers/run_test.c:600: Subprocess is still running with GID set to root [0.010s] 

-- usr.bin/yacc/legacy_test:main -> failed: 15 tests of 15 failed [0.150s] 

Is there some place that I can see more details on the actual failures from Kyua? I ran "kyua report" and redirected that into a file and that is all the information I have. 

Thanks for any advice/pointers/corrections,
