I hadn't realized those tests were there; does anyone use them?

gcc.misc-tests/dg-* test for different things than do my new tests.
The existing tests could be renamed so that my awk script that
determines whether results were as expected could look at them as well.
My tests could be merged with gcc.misc-tests/dg-test.exp, or those
tests could be run from the same exp files as my new generated tests.
