There are classes of problems that our test suite simply isn't designed
to catch.

For example:

- We won't catch 'premature kill -9' bugs (r1494298)
- We won't catch concurrency bugs (r1302613)

So, no, running "make check" under more configurations (despite still
being an improvement) won't make me more confident that FSFS7 is in
release-shape. It simply doesn't test enough code paths.
