    "content": "Previously, unit tests were running in groups. There were\ntechnical reasons why that was the case (mostly having to do\nwith limiting memory), but it was hard to maintain and update\nthe autotest script.\n\nIn 18.05, limiting of memory at DPDK startup was no longer\nnecessary, as DPDK allocates memory at runtime as needed. This\nhas the implication that the old test grouping can now be\nretired and replaced with a more sensible way of running unit\ntests (using multiprocessing pool of workers and a queue of\ntests). This patchset accomplishes exactly that.\n\nThis patchset conflicts with some of the earlier work on\nautotests [1] [2] [3], but i think it presents a cleaner\nsolution for some of the problems highlighted by those patch\nseries. I can integrate those patches into this series if\nneed be.\n\n[1] http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/40370/\n[2] http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/40371/\n[3] http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/40372/\n\nAnatoly Burakov (7):\n  autotest: fix printing\n  autotest: fix invalid code on reports\n  autotest: make autotest runner python 2/3 compliant\n  autotest: visually separate different test categories\n  autotest: improve filtering\n  autotest: remove autotest grouping\n  autotest: properly parallelize unit tests\n\n test/test/autotest.py        |  13 +-\n test/test/autotest_data.py   | 749 ++++++++++++++---------------------\n test/test/autotest_runner.py | 519 ++++++++++++------------\n 3 files changed, 586 insertions(+), 695 deletions(-)"
