Thanks Chaitanya, I'm interested in them too. I can share my view on the current
status of blktests.

Agreed. I guess this maybe meant for real RDMA hardware, which was discussed in
a couple of GitHub pull requests [1][2].


Another topic I suggest is,

 - Automated blktests runs and reports

Recently I learned that CKI project runs blktests regularly against Linus master
branch and linux-block for-next branch, then makes the run results visible on
the net [3][4]. Now I'm trying to understand detailed conditions of the test
runs. If we can discuss and clarify what kind of run conditions will help
storage kernel developers, it will be a good input to CKI project, hopefully.
