For kuya/QEMU, it builds a image which executes tests upon launch:

and mounts the image to extract results:

For bhyve, it uses expect-like library to login and executes tests

it also extracts log from image by mounting VM image:

It would be more awesome if we can have everything automate to create
test VM from an unmodifed image, just like what we put to
release/snapshot, setup test env, and run tests on them, then extracting
results.  I think expect solution is good for this.  And I am interested
to know if there is any other approache.
