Well, for now, I prefer emails because I did not follow the CI discussions
so far and I might be off topic.

Here I go, the list is large, I tried to write from the basic to the most
advanced/less used.

- Non regression tests on basic startup (we can reuse the dpdk ut and/or
enhance them), this part would be hw agnostic:
  - core checks: playing with cpus online/offline + dpdk coremask/list +
checking cpu affinity of all dpdk threads
  - memory checks: a big topic because we have multiple modes at the moment
  - startup devices blacklist/whitelist
  - hotplug (unplug) of devices

- Non regression tests on eth drivers (testpmd seems the best candidate),
this must be ran against a lot of nics/drivers:
  - reception of unicast packets: check that we receive packets for primary
and secondary addresses (and only for them, meaning with checks that
undesired packets are dropped following updates)
  - promisc support
  - idem with multicast packets
  - link status checks
  - rte_eth_link_up/down checks
  - mtu checks
  - rss checks
  - ptypes classification
  - stats checks
  - rte_flow checks
  - port restart checks + associated configuration persistency
  - flow control
  - rx/tx offloads
  - rx/tx descriptor status
