blktests is a test framework for the Linux kernel block layer and storage stack. It is inspired by the xfstests filesystem testing framework. It was originally written by Omar Sandoval and announced in 2017.
The dependencies are minimal, but make sure you have them installed:

Do not add anything to the
TEST_DEVS array containing data that you want to keep.
See here for more detailed information on configuration and running tests.
New test cases are welcomed when,
./new script creates a new test from a template. The generated template contains more detailed documentation. The ./new script itself can be referred to as a document. It describes variables and functions that test cases should implement, global variables that test cases can refer and coding guidelines.
