Actually it turns out to be GFamFileMonitor on my system, presumably because I 
have the gamin package installed.  I'm going to see if I can figure out how 
GFamFileMonitor works.  As a quick check, however, I applied the following 

--- a/test/lisp/filenotify-tests.el
+++ b/test/lisp/filenotify-tests.el
@@ -73,7 +73,8 @@ file-notify--test-read-event
     ;; gio/gpollfilemonitor.c declares POLL_TIME_SECS 5. So we must
     ;; wait at least this time.
     ((and (string-equal (file-notify--test-library) "gfilenotify")
-         (string-equal (file-notify--test-monitor) "GPollFileMonitor"))
+          (or (string-equal (file-notify--test-monitor) "GPollFileMonitor")
+              (string-equal (file-notify--test-monitor) "GFamFileMonitor")))
     ((file-remote-p temporary-file-directory) 0.1)
     (t 0.01))))

...and all the inexpensive tests passed.  I'll keep playing with this.

It's building right now and should be available shortly.
