I thought gcc policy was that the testsuite should have zero unexpected FAILs. Ie. spurious XPASSes are preferable to FAILs for known-broken tests.

Well, yes, but that's unobtainable. The testsuite will always show more failures on (64-bit) big-endian systems, because 32-bit little-endian targets will hide 'm.


You were also proposing removing the comments mentioning the related PR, which has definitely not been fixed.

Ah, OK, I didn't know that - that might be a reason to keep them, although removing the xfail would still help in highlighting the problematic (target | options) couple.


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 :(

I agree - I've no idea where this goes wrong ...
