There are 5 regressions for the eglibc 2.11-0exp7 release.
Test (1) is a compiler bug involving the multiplication of -1 * NAN.
The compiler defect causes the test to fail. The actual stdio
implementation in glibc is working correctly. I have manually tested
the stdio functions and they work correctly. This test can be XFAIL'd.
Test (2) is a VIPT-WB cache issue in the kernel. The HPPA port has a
patch set that is currently being worked on to fix this cache problem,
until then I expect tst-fork1 and tst-fork2 to fail intermittently.
There for tst-fork1 and tst-fork2 should be XFAIL'd until the kernel
bug is fixed. There is nothing we can do until then.
I am still analyzing (3), (4) and (5) which appears to be related.
