I think you are using the old numbers.  POSIX.4 became part of POSIX at 

It does more than just call the POSIX entry points.

It is trying to be a thorough functional test of the RTEMS supported 
portions of POSIX 1003.1b.  It
is not a full conformance test since many POSIX functions are provided 
by newlib.  The goal of the tests
is to get as high coverage of the RTEMS implementation.

And I am sure it can use enhancement .. every test suite I have ever 
seen could and I know this one
depends on the fact that the SuperCore is doing a lot of work that was 
tested by the Classic API

Did that answer it?
