xfstests regularly corrupts filesystems and leaves their corpses
hanging out to dry - if xfstests causes your machine to crash (and it
will) then trying to automatically mount the filesystems it uses on
reboot is just plain silly. Corrupt filesystems will fail to mount,
and you'll see problems like this.

Indeed, xfstests should only be run on a machine that you don't care
about losing everything on. If you must test on your desktop/laptop,
create a VM and run xfstests inside the VM...

Cheers,

Dave.
