[PATCH 0/2] Add check-native and check-nonnative as make targets

Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Add check-native and check-nonnative as make targets

Tests can be put into two categories, native (tests that run on the build
system) and non-native (tests run in QEMU). For any two targets (even of
completely different architectures), the native tests will be running the
same binary code (because they will be compiled for and run on the build
machine), and thus will have the same result. So when building and
running tests for multiple targets on a build machine, the native tests on
need be run once. This can decrease the runtime of a multi-target test run
significantly (like hours). This patch series makes it possible to run only
run the non-native tests (skipping the native tests) by partitioning the set
of tests into native and non-native based on whether QEMU is used by the test.
The first patch is not necessary, but makes things look cleaner.

Phcoder, could you confirm that the logic above is sound?
