I've made a quick attempt (replacing an existing dg-skip-if with
dg-xfail-if in vcvt_high-1.c)
and I do see XFAIL and UNRESOLVED.
But this seems normal in this case, because:
- when using dg-skip-if, the test was not compiled (skipped)
- when using dg-xfail-if, the test is actually compiled, leading to
compilation errors which are reported as UNRESOLVED
