I'm really in favor of a modular test-suite, splitting as much as possible the infrastructure with the individual suites, and making it super easy and convenient to assemble modular suites together. We already have the mechanism for "external" test-suite, it would just need to be first-class.
i.e. I'd like to clone the test-suite, which would get me only the infrastructure but no test to run, and then easily say: "clone these test-suite and make them available: llvm, Halide, etc." which would clone them from separate repositories. And then list the available suite and quick runs over chosen ones.

Just some thoughts...
