Fix Linux Test Project (LTP) failures

Registered by Shawn Guo on 2011-05-02

Things to be discussed:

1. What LTP version we should get start from as the baseline? Right now, Ubuntu/Linaro ships ltp-base-20091231, Validation abrek testing framework pulls ltp-full-20100831, while the latest source from ltp.sourceforge.net is ltp-full-20110228. I played all these three versions a little bit on i.mx51 and I was seeing very different test set and results.

2. What the exact test set we should work on for the 11.10 cycle?
