Re: while working on an optimized version of strnlen, some string tests fail

This is my current 'make check' result.

XPASS: elf/tst-protected1a
XPASS: elf/tst-protected1b
FAIL: malloc/tst-malloc-thread-fail
UNSUPPORTED: math/test-nearbyint-except-2
FAIL: nptl/tst-cancel24-static
FAIL: posix/tst-getaddrinfo5
Summary of test results:
         3 FAIL
   2432 PASS
         1 UNSUPPORTED
       43 XFAIL
         2 XPASS

malloc/tst-malloc-thread-fail.out says "Timed out: killed the child process".
Is it possible that this test failure relates to something with my
test environment, rather than my implementation?
I'm testing on an ODROID-XU4 board.

nptl/tst-cancel24-static.out says "Didn't expect signal from child:
got `Segmentation fault'"
and this failure is mentioned at
(I'm running the test case on the 2.24 version branch).

posix/tst-getaddrinfo5 seems to fail because my test board does not
have an internet connection.

Is it okay to ignore tests listed as UNSUPPORTED, XFAIL, and XPASS?
