only sem_open-static.exe fails, so i'm not sure what's the problem

(if /dev/shm were broken then the failure of sem_open would be printed)

if the test machine is x86 with /dev/kvm then run qemu with --enable-kvm
(x87 emulation is too broken otherwise)

another weird -static only failure

current libc-test has setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "C.UTF-8");
