Subject: musl CI?

The topic of CI for testing came up on #musl today, and although it's
not something I want to be responsible for running, it does sound very
good to have. We noted that libc-test currently has tests that are
failing and expected to fail, and that this is normal and not cause
for disabling tests, but it did suggest to me a methodology that seems
more appropriate than checking whether tests succeed: checking for
differences in test output (as well as other things, like symbol
table) vs suitable baselines like last release or last run.

I don't think anyone has concrete plans for going forward with this
yet, but I'm posting the outcome so far here for further discussion
and so it's not lost.
