For a first question: Would it be reasonable to transition gcc.c-torture
tests over to the gcc.dg framework? If not, why not?
The tests are fundamentally different in nature. Torture tests iterate
known problematic sources over different optimization and debugging
options, while dg tests exercise features. Both types of tests already
use common compilation/execution procedures, so I don't see what else
there is to simplify by having them share it.
(In general, when considering reorg ideas, don't look at directories
so much, focus on the .exp files and what they do.)
