The idea is to execute dg-style tests (where dg is a simple
high-level driver used by many of the gcc tests) in parallel,
and leave other styles of test alone.  (I think gcc is moving
more of the tests towards dg in order to make it easier to support
that other regression testing framework.)

This lets you easily pipeline compilation and execution,
since dg-style tests do nothing but run simple standalone programs
in batch mode on the target.
