That sounds like an installation problem, not something that needs
to be worked around in the tests. Indeed, this problem woul dmean
that the fsgqa user woul dnot be able to execute anything in the
src/, ltp/ or tools/ subdirectories, and I don't think we want to
work around all those sorts of problems in tests like this.
Indeed, if you look at the make install rules, the install rule for
the ltp/ subdir does:
TARGETS = doio fsstress fsx growfiles iogen
SCRIPTS = rwtest.sh
$(INSTALL) -m 755 -d $(PKG_LIB_DIR)/ltp
$(INSTALL) -m 755 $(TARGETS) $(PKG_LIB_DIR)/ltp
$(INSTALL) -m 755 $(SCRIPTS) $(PKG_LIB_DIR)/ltp
It changes the permissions on the ltp/ directory to rwxr-xr-x, as
well as for the binaries in the ltp/ subdir. This means the fsgqa
user should be able to run the ltp/fsstress binary without any
changes to the test scripts.
