Ah, that would explain it!  This part of setshow.exp:

# Don't test if we can't pass args or if we're using a stub.
if { ![target_info exists use_gdb_stub] && ![target_info exists noargs] } {
    #test passing args
    gdb_test "cont" "Continuing.*" "continuing"
    gdb_test "run" "Starting program:.*foo bar blup baz bubble.*" "passing args"

is skipped on spu-elf because we cannot pass command line arguments
(well, at least it's not set up that way).

However, it seems to me that this is still a bug: I don't really think the
intention was that the remaining checks are to be executed on a running
inferior on some targets, and on a exited inferior on others ...
