Make linknamespace tests check only relevant libraries

This patch addresses one known caveat in the linknamespace tests: with
this patch they will now only look for definitions of symbols in
relevant libraries, meaning that librt and libpthread are not checked
for ISO C standards, XPG3 and XPG4.

In particular, this means that if __pthread_initialize_minimal is
somehow brought in for one of those standards, the definition from
libc-tls.o will be considered instead of that from libpthread, so
avoiding bringing in lots of other libpthread symbols.  This should
address some of the failures reported by Carlos in
<>, where
__pointer_chk_guard_local brought in __pthread_initialize_minimal.

Tested for x86_64.  The removal of one XFAIL for XPG4 actually shows
up a header bug (shm_open should not be declared for XPG4 - the
namespace issue was for symbols brought in by shm_open, which is no
longer found at all now librt isn't searched; I've filed bug 17663 for
the header bug, though it would show up eventually anyway in the
course of review of conform/ data against XPG4).
