I thought gcc policy was that the testsuite should have zero unexpected FAILs.
Ie. spurious XPASSes are preferable to FAILs for known-broken tests.
You were also proposing removing the comments mentioning the related PR, which
has definitely not been fixed.
It's not a regression (that particular code never worked), so IMHO it can wait
in line with any other wrong-code bugs we have :(
