Yes, we want always want a test case. It's perfectly fine to use C++
in  tests in glibc, and if the C++ compiler isn't present those tests
should become UNSUPPORTED tests, which is OK (when bootstrapping).

In summary:
- Add C++ test.
- Use BZ #19439 and provide ChangeLog.
- Post v2

I'll review it and commit, or someone else will.
