How is this list generated? Only from smbtorture calls?
I'm asking because in addition to the relatively sparse set of "real"
unit tests, we have a lot of tests that are more broad functional tests.
Many of our blackbox tests e.g. for wbinfo fall into that category.

I'm mainly asking because this list reports that
lpcfg_dns_recursive_queries is unused.

This function is called for each and every DNS packet we process. It is
run ~20 times from the dns tests at least.
