the thought occurred to me, it may be possible to use git submodules here,
to automatically bring in another git repository containing the
required test data.
it would not need to be built, just "brought in".  also, the specific hash would
mean that the test data did not change without warning.

however if doing it that way, yes, adding it to openpower-isa would be
if however it's done as an "auto-extraction shell script" then the purpose of
openpower-isa as a central location for "unit tests of OpenPOWER ISA in general"
is preserved.

what's your thoughts? i'm happy either way (but definitely not with
actually committing
actual test data of large size(s) to the git repos)
