Interesting. I'm surprised we didn't do something similar in ironic. :)

That said, this would be totally useful to us, as we're struggling to
make things scale to pass smoke tests reliably.

If we could just run the normal baremetal tests on the base/target side,
that would probably get us up and running quickly, and could iterate on
more realistic testing past that. I know "just baremetal basic ops"
isn't something we want to keep doing, but we're also blocking some
important features on getting upgrade testing going.
