If you have a look at a review in gerrit you can see others appear to
have a single account with multiple tests/results submitted.  HP, EMC
and NetApp all appear to be pretty clear examples of how to go about
doing this.  My personal preference on this has always been a single
CI account anyway with the different drivers consolidated under it; if
nothing else it reduces clutter in the review posting and makes it
"easier" to find what you might be looking for.
