[lfs-dev] util-linux regression tests

util-linux now has a test suite.  In chroot, 'make check' fails because 
it is running as root.
If I run as a non-root user, the tests pass, but many are skipped.

The actual command beeing run in the Makefile is:

tests/run.sh --srcdir=$(abs_top_srcdir) --builddir=$(abs_top_builddir) 

If I remove --nonroot,  the tests can be run as root, but I get a lot of 
failures because it can't find the scsi_debug module so it is kernel 
dependent.  The tests also hang after a while for me.

I'm looking for someone to verify so we can come up with the best 
approach for the book.
