I don't see the connection here? XFAIL was designed to flag tests that
are known to fail in certain configurations. It's valid to have XFAIL on
one branch but not on another.

I've since been reminded that in this case we can't reliably XFAIL the
tests because we don't (yet) have the bits in the test infrastructure
that would allow one to write the appropriate condition with consistent
results.
