Good point: since the test must be run as root, I anticipate this will be
annoying for packagers: builds are performed as simple user, with no sudo
access (and obviously no *passwordless* sudo access).  At least that's how
it works for Arch and OpenWRT.

Anyway, it's probably a bad idea to muck with the kernel of the building
host, and it's not even possible when cross-compiling.
