If it were a dozen lines of carefully crafted Haskell, I probably would brag 
(just a little), but 3 files of shell script :)

I have finally checked in a version into the gta03-test-suite.git.  I delayed 
it until I figured out how to get the static device node. John Lee pointed
out the file I needed for this.  So hopefully it will now generate
something that can boot.  I will attempt to test it today.

Best regards.
