Ok, now we have 3 failed tests, and a good number of the tests were
fixed instead of disabled:

Failed test cases:
    fs/nullfs/t_basic:twistymount, lib/semaphore/pthread/t_sem_pth:unlink,

This first two have PRs for them (in the test descr) and the last one
seems like a bug, so I didn't disable it.

We have talked a little with Julio about a feature to get tests with an
associated PR classified separately -- it's useful to have regression
tests from bug reports committed into tests as soon as possible, but
they shouldn't cause the whole run to fail, as some PRs can be extremely
tricky to fix and it can take a while before they are taken care of.

stay tuned ...
