No. I did most of my testing outside of the glibc testsuite because I
find the glibc testsuite difficult to run, see
https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-help/2013-08/msg00040.html for some of my
problems/questions. I don't believe I have ever managed to do a clean
glibc testsuite run even in a clean tree with no local changes. I did a
glibc testsuite run in o32 little-endian mode and did not see any
failures that looked like regressions from what I saw with a clean tree.
I did the rest of my testing outside of that.
