Thank you. I agree with the others, it looks much better. Good range of tests. Camera might indeed fit in a different category ("system"), but so long as all sub test results are reported, I don't mind.

Agree with verifying results too. If you can do it, you would not have to carry the entire output to verify against, just a hash.

What components are you building yourself, versus making use of on the host? For example the jpeg test it sounds like you are building the libjpeg library as part of your test, so you will always get a particular version of it. Whereas maybe you are linking against host libc?
