The current testsuite is a big bunch of standalone RTEMS applications
hosted inside of the rtems.git source tree at rtems.git/testsuites/*

For some of the prior work done in this area have a look through

Amar has a kind of vision for where he would like to see this go.

For testing it is ultimately best if you can reach a fairly broad
range of simulated targets, but in general you can get good coverage
sparc/erc32 -- for gdb simulator testing of sparc
i386/pc386 -- for qemu testing of i386
xilinx_zynq_a9_qemu -- for qemu testing of arm
