[Lldb-commits] [PATCH] Skip lldb-mi tests on FreeBSD for now

Hi all,

We need as many tests as possible.  I think that the lldb-mi tests are
incredibly valuable.  Thanks to the lldb-mi team for that!

Looking over the Linux builders, I'm noticing that the lldb-mi tests are
changing state frequently.  I think that Ed should submit this change for
now.  I'd also like him to disable the tests on Linux for now.

I would like the LLDB MI guys to followup quickly with a patch that enables
tests that they know are 100% reliable and quickly XFAIL as necessary.

I know the buildbots aren't green but we're actually closing on that.
