But Kenner has sometime lately included simple Ada testcases, it's just
that there isn't an Ada equivalent of the C/C++/Fortran testsuites into
which to put them.

Just because a bug is triggered by compiling GNAT now, doesn't mean it
will be triggered by compiling GNAT later after GNAT changes. While
ideally testing in such cases would be unit testing of single passes,
inclusion of a cut-down testcase in the testsuite is still valuable.
There are plenty of testcases in the testsuite derived from parts of GCC.
