Testsuite failures from running as root

Description

In http://lists.linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/lfs-dev/2020-May/073789.html I reported on test results using the cross-chap5 approach. But people who read it probably skimmed over some of the detail. The following items are applicable to the trunk book:

  1. sed

The testsuite.panic-tests.sh fails because the tests are run as root. Running as user nobody is adequate for making all the tests pass.

  1. findutils

Similarly, sv-bug-54171.old-O3 and sv-bug-54171.new-O3 fail because the tests are being run as root.

Please hold off on this for a few days. We may want to run tests as a full (temporary) user.

I went ahead and fixed this using the new user 'tester'. Fixed at revision 11869.
