... and it is definitely worth doing. On my system a 'time' of make
check reports that about 50% of the real time running make check is
spent in the OS. This probably also limits the efficacy of attempts to
parallelize the test suite, if someone was crazy enough to do that.

Using opt -S for tests that end up going to llvm-dis would also be nice.
