Disclaimer: I don't actually understand any of the glibc tests, so I
don't really know what's failing besides looking at the name. I would
probably just move on. Thing's will be functional.

One thing you can do is look at the output files from the tests to see
if there's anything that really stands out. For instance, there should
be a nptl/mutex5.out file that has the log from the test.

If you're interested in resolving some test failures, you may want to
try using different compiler flags, especially -march. That can also
lead to more failures, though.
