It doesn't work in remote host.

It is difficult to get it working for remote host either, because we
need to copy all features/*.xml to the remote host.
Can we just skip this unit test if it can't find "features" directory?
std::string feature_dir (ldirname (__FILE__));
struct stat st;
/* Look for the features directory. If the directory of __FILE__ can't
be found, __FILE__ is a file name with relative path. Guess that
GDB is executed in testsuite directory like ../gdb, because I don't
expect that GDB is invoked somewhere else and run self tests. */
if (stat (feature_dir.data (), &st) < 0)
feature_dir.insert (0, SLASH_STRING);
feature_dir.insert (0, "..");
/* If still can't find the path, skip it. */
