That was non-trivial due to the fact that I cannot build mono. But it
seems there is no native (C code) test suite for sgen. Using the
documented hack I posted, I was able to run the sgen only tests:

% make sgen-tests -C mono/tests


../../runtime/mono-wrapper ./test-runner.exe --testsuite-name
sgen-regular-tests-plain --timeout 900 finalizer-wait.exe
Running tests:
* Assertion at mini-exceptions.c:2034, condition `(guint8*)&sa >=
(guint8*)tls->stack_ovf_guard_base + tls->stack_ovf_guard_size' not

Anyone with sgen internal implementation could point me to a minimal
test to run (basic sgen functionalities).
