Such my.exp is invalid, you need to guarantee gcc_parallel_test_run_p
is run the same number of times in all instances unless
gcc_parallel_test_enable has been disabled.

See the patches I've posted when adding the fine-grained parallelization,
e.g. go testsuite has been fixed that way, etc.
So, in your above example, you'd need:
    gcc_parallel_test_enable 0
line before c-torture-execute and
    gcc_parallel_test_enable 1
line after gcc-dg-runtest.  That way, if runtest_file_p says the test should
be scheduled by current instance, all the subtests will be run there.

If my.exp is part of gcc/testsuite, I'm sorry for missing it, if it is
elsewhere, just fix it up.

Note, there are #verbose lines in gcc_parallel_test_run_p, you can uncomment
them and through sed on the log files verify that each instance performs the
same parallelization checks (same strings).
