vimto: virtual machine testing for go test

vimto is a small program which grew out of my need to run the unit tests for the cilium/ebpf library under a variety of Linux kernels. It’s inspired by virtme. I built vimto to integrate it very tightly with the Go toolchain and ecosystem and to put an emphasis on easy setup and low overhead.

After installing the tool you can run your tests like so:

go test -exec vimto -vm.kernel

You can find the source code and installation instructions on GitHub.
