5.7. Glibc-2.21:

s/Fix is regression/Fix regression/

6.9. Glibc-2.21

Seven failures in the tests. Following three not in the book.

FAIL: grp/testgrp
FAIL: posix/globtest
FAIL: pwd/tst-getpw

Problem seems to be the necessity of /etc/passwd and /etc/group with
user:group 0:0 all defined. After copied the ones from the host (Mint),
those tests passed:

$ cat grp/testgrp.out
My login name is root.
My uid is 0.
My home directory is /root.
My default shell is /bin/bash.
My default group is root (0).
The members of this group are:

$ cat posix/globtest
All OK.

$ cat pwd/tst-getpw
PASS: NULL buffer returns -1 and sets errno to EINVAL.
PASS: Read a password line given a uid.
PASS: Found an invalid uid.

and the */*-result gives for all three:

PASS: ...
original exit status 0
