This is now reported as https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?55538

Another problem is that a test may be tagged with one bug number that
was fixed, but then may fail on a particular system for a completely
different reason.

And yet another problem is that this bug may be closed as "won't fix" on
savannah because it's an LLVM bug. Someone may later tag it as <*55538>
because the bug report is closed, but the "*" is supposed to mark only
bugs that have been fixed.
