That's right, in my tests only the "unit_tests" suite ran without
issues. The "fast_regressions" suite had many more failures than when
run as part of the 'check' target. (See my mail to the lttng list for more.)

Still, I think it's good to include these tests. If anything they may
just provide more motivation to address the underlying issue. :-)

Do you think it would be worthwhile submitting this patch upstream ?
(The output format of prove is not the easiest to understand, and even
with the above some information may be lost. A more robust fix would
probably include a dedicated TAP formatter plugin
(http://perldoc.perl.org/TAP/Formatter/Console.html) that produces
ptest-compatible output.
