Currently I added a test like the following which adds a new torture type, my
thought was to stress the new code to make sure nothing crashed or hung the
kernel. That is working well except I don't exactly understand the total-gps
print showing 0, which the other print shows 1188 GPs. I'll go dig into that
tomorrow.. thanks!

The print shows
TREE11 ------- 1474 GPs (12.2833/s) [rcu_lazy: g0 f0x0 total-gps=0]
TREE11 no success message, 7 successful version messages
