you don't need to run libc-test.

you have to ensure that before and after the patch the
exact same stripped libc binaries are generated and point
this out in the commit message.

(in principle register allocation, instruction scheduling
etc can change, in practice that should not happen if you
get all parenthesis right and use the same toolchain.

not all header files are used in libc code so you could
write further tests for them or compile code using them
if you want to make sure everything works, but that's
not critical.)
