>Description:

The lib/libc/gen/posix_spawn/t_spawnattr hangs reproducably
on a single processor ARM machine (but at least did the
same once on a multiprocessor alpha).

The test ends spawns a helper and ends with:

        ATF_REQUIRE_MSG(pid == getpgid(pid), "child pid: %d, child pgid: %d",
            pid, getpgid(pid));

        /* ready, let child go */
        write(pfd[1], "q", 1);
        close(pfd[0]);
        close(pfd[1]);

        /* wait and check result from child */
        waitpid(pid, &status, 0);
        ATF_REQUIRE(WIFEXITED(status) && WEXITSTATUS(status) == EXIT_SUCCESS);

        posix_spawnattr_destroy(&attr);

but when hanging, the test process itself is trying to exit, while
the helper process is still reading commands from the pipe.

 The issue consists of mulitple things:

  - the kernel part fails, we get the wrong scheduler priority
    (I think this very recentish has been fixed on head by Christos)
  - the test case is broken and aborts the test case, without notifying
    the helper/child process
  - not all siblings terminate properly, atf-run hangs

State-Changed-Why:
this one was a missed pullup by me following pullup-8 892, thanks martin for figuring it out.
is it fixed now?

State-Changed-Why:
It works for now, but test failure (in some of the ATF_REQUIRE) would
still be fatal and kill the whole test run. The test case is
missing proper cleanup - I'll add that in -current.
