Re: [rfa:testsuite} Overhaul sizeof.exp

I can take a look at the KFAIL stuff this weekend if you want.

But if the ample majority wants to try again [2] and is willing to
work in establishing polices to try and make that work
this time and is willing to help enforcing those polices I would
agree with that.

So, I am for [3]->[2']->[0']

2' - [2] with extrict polices to prevent xfails to be forgotten.

0' - [0] but the tests are saved somewhere, so they are added
     when the fix goes in.
