[3] is best for me.  I disagreed with Fernando's claim that we are using
XFAIL the way DejaGNU defines it; I do not disagree that we need more
granularity.  [1] is barely tolerable.  [2] and [0] are not.

As far as I'm concerned, the ideal path would be:
  - Add KFAIL support.
  - Add new failing tests that we can fix in GDB as KFAIL
  - Change appropriate existing XFAILs to KFAILs, and document
