I have no idea on how to do (a) or what kind of tests we would need for
(b) but (c) seems easy enough. If I change DEFAULT_CONFIG in
nss/grp-lookup.c, nss/pwd-lookup.c, and nss/spwd-lookup.c from
"compat [NOTFOUND=return] files" to just "files", the tests work fine
on my x86 and aarch64 boxes. Does that seem like the right
DEFAULT_CONFIG? If so, I can submit a patch.
