FYI, ninja check-lldb actually calls dosep.

Of course, these commands assume you're running the tests from the lldb/test directory.

I've pasted (and tweaked) the relavent comments from that review here, where I describe a narrowed case showing how dosep fails to count all the test cases from one test suite in test/types.  Note that the tests were run on OSX, so your counts may vary.

The final count from:
    Ran N test cases .*
is wrong, as I'll explain below. I've done a comparison between dosep and dotest on a narrowed subset of tests to show how dosep can omit the test cases from a test suite in its count.

Tested on subset of lldb/test with just the following directories/files (i.e. all others directories/files were removed):
# The .py files kept in test/types are as follows (so test/types/TestIntegerTypes.py* was removed):

Tests were run in the lldb/test directory using the following commands:
	./dotest.py -v
	./dosep.py -s --options "-v"

Comparing the test case totals, dotest correctly counts 46, but dosep counts only 16:
	Ran 46 tests in 75.934s
	Testing: 23 tests, 4 threads ## note: this number changes randonmly
	Ran 6 tests in 7.049s
	[PASSED TestFloatTypes.py] - 1 out of 23 test suites processed
	Ran 6 tests in 11.165s
	[PASSED TestFloatTypesExpr.py] - 2 out of 23 test suites processed
	Ran 30 tests in 54.581s ## FIXME: not counted?
	[PASSED TestIntegerTypesExpr.py] - 3 out of 23 test suites processed
	Ran 4 tests in 3.212s
	[PASSED TestRecursiveTypes.py] - 4 out of 23 test suites processed
	Ran 4 test suites (0 failed) (0.000000%)
	Ran 16 test cases (0 failed) (0.000000%)

With test/types/TestIntegerTypesExpr.py* removed, both correctly count 16 test cases:
	Testing: 16 tests, 4 threads
	Ran 6 tests in 7.059s
	Ran 6 tests in 11.186s
	Ran 4 tests in 3.241s
	Ran 3 test suites (0 failed) (0.000000%)
	Ran 16 test cases (0 failed) (0.000000%)

Note: I couldn't compare the test counts on all the tests because of the concern raised in http://reviews.llvm.org/rL237053. That is, dotest can no longer complete the tests on OSX, as all test suites fail after test case 898: test_disassemble_invalid_vst_1_64_raw_data get ERRORs. I don't think that issue is related to problems in dosep.
