I don't think that we should be setting XFAIL for ICE's.  In several
cases, where we were setting XFAIL for a test, the expectation was for
a miscompile, not a crash.  Because ICE's look so bad, any ICE's should
be clearly exposed to all egcs developers and testers, so there will be
more incentive to fix them.  We may be expecting a failure but we
should not be expecting an ICE.
