The patch is fine, but it does not help (i. e. speed up things on a
multiprocessor machine). This is because there is basically one large
call to runtest, which then runs on one processor. And I have not found
any way to convince runtest to run its test cases in parallel. So
DejaGNU might have to be extended to support that?!
