I'm not sure what you mean by "we don't actually support not and
count". The test runner modifies the PATH of the subprocess to include
LLVM's test/Scripts dir, which is the same as it used to do (although
the mechanism changed a bit).

I'm not exactly sure what problem you are referring to, but yeah
perhaps not worth worrying about until things change to not using
