Just one slight correction to my previous email, caused by a faulty memory!
In the "Actions you may need to take:" block, point 3 refers to
"check-debuginfo-tests" when it should be simply "check-debuginfo".

> What is the new directory for?
> The new directory is intended for tests that have dependencies on multiple
> LLVM sub-projects, e.g. both clang and lld, or clang and lldb etc, where
> the thing under test is some interaction between these components. It is
> also for tests that test main LLVM components that require some non-main
> LLVM component (e.g. LLD) to generate a test input, where generating that
> test input is otherwise not possible.
> What is this new directory NOT for?
> The new directory is not intended for tests that test a main LLVM
> component where it is possible to generate the test input at runtime using
> other main LLVM components (such tests should use the main LLVM tools, such
> as yaml2obj/llvm-mc etc to generate test inputs). It is also not a place
> for testing individual LLVM sub-projects, if they do not rely on things
> other than main LLVM components to generate inputs (such tests belong in
> the corresponding sub-project test directory).
> Importantly, although this new directory does allow a location for
> end-to-end tests, individual parts of LLVM should still be tested in
> isolation in their respective test directories. The existence of this test
> directory does not in itself constitute a go-ahead for end-to-end tests in
> general. That discussion is a separate topic.
> New tests within this directory should make use of REQUIRES: <X> tags
> where X is one (or more) of "clang", "lldb", "ld.lld", "lld-link",
> "ld64.lld" or "wasm-ld" to indicate that clang/lldb/the respective lld port
> is required for the test. These will be marked as UNSUPPORTED if the
> respective project is not enabled via LLVM_ENABLE_PROJECT.
> Actions you may need to take:
> 1) If you have `debuginfo-test` in your list of projects specified to
> LLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS, you need to change it to `cross-project-tests`. If
> you don't, you will stop generating the relevant check targets.
> 2) If you are a build-bot owner the same applies - you likely need to
> update your CMake command-line.
> 3) If you are currently using check-debuginfo-test, consider switching to
> check-cross-project-tests.
