"Jordan Crouse" <jordan.crouse@amd.com> says:
The following patch makes coreutils/test.c act fail gracefully if getgroups() returns a -1.  This fixes a problem on the One Laptop Per Child ROM image whereby we were getting odd Memory exhausted messages for '[' and 'test'. Found by Mitch Bradley <wmb@firmworks.com> (Tweaked by Rob: no need to initialize a static to NULL, or realloc something that's only allocated when it's NULL.)
