Comment(by Quozl):

 I think we should separate our manufacturing test from what the customer
 wants, and make a new test for the customer alone.

 While we can reasonably assume that an OLPCOFW SSID can be prevented from
 occurring during manufacturing, I don't think the same can be said for any
 open SSID.  A laptop running default tests would transmit RF; currently
 they do not.  A set of laptops doing the test will cause interference.
 Some chance future access point may cause test failure through some
 mechanism we are not yet aware of.

 Once the test is customer specific, we can also add DHCP and ping.
 However, even that is not an adequate test for some requirements.  We
 should also be attempting large packet length pings, multicast, TCP, UDP,
 and DNS.  We have another kernel that can do all this, without requiring
