Since this does its own glibc checkout, it's not clear to me how one
should use it to test a patch(set). I presume that whatever one does,
it only affects the "glibcs" step, but what actually do you do? Do you
manually update /some/where/src/glibc to contain the code you want
tested and then run "glibcs", or do you somehow tell
build-many-glibcs.py the name of a branch you want tested, or what?
