There is a "log to stdout" option - "make check LOG_TO_STDOUT=1" or
"build/run_tests.py --log-to-stdout". Can you use that instead?

Oh... run_tests.py doesn't show the "--log-to-stdout" option in its help
text. Fixing... r935477.

(I would prefer such a patch to share a "print failures" subroutine with
the existing code. It seems a bit... I don't know... arbitrary to
insert this particular bunch of messages into the progress notification
stream. For one thing, doesn't the definition of "FAILURE" include
"XPASS" results?)
