The following should work to test, for example, only numpy.linalg:

from numpy.testing import NumpyTest
import numpy

suite = NumpyTest(numpy.linalg)

The test_*.py pattern is specified as


(default is ['test_%(modulename)s.py']), but because of the way
NumpyTest is written, there is a one-to-one correspondence between
module names and test files.  Maybe that should change.
