Adding 'sudo' is not a good idea.  I don't think all the developers
have an environment where they can be root without password.  'sudo'
should be added outside of the test script.

Currently, I'm preparing continuous integration platform on BuildHive
where root is not allowed.  This patch is also necessary for it.

Setting the working directory with an environment variable doesn't
works for you?  For example,

 $ sudo env WD=/other/directory ./check
