As discussed in the orignal thread that proposed removing these
testcases, some of the tests are related to kernel, some not so much.

For example the file or cron tests does not correspond to any kernel
functionality at all, while the df or du testcases, for instance, are
testing kernel filesystem implementation. So the plain is to examine
these tests case by case.
