I don't know what dirent/tst-fdopendir and rt/tst-mqueue5 are, but I'd
expect libio/tst-atime to fail when the filesystem is mounted with the
noatime option, which is pretty commonly used for performance reasons.

I recall having a similar set of failures when I first built LFS. I
continued and I haven't encountered any problems. Remember that the
test suites are intended to be used by developers to check for
