i didn't want to fix the entire test to use the new
conventions, so i only changed these lines.


The test spawns two children but only waited for one.
The fix avoids printing to stderr.

	* posix/tst-spawn.c (do_test): Wait for both children.

Sorry, one more thing: I think you should not interleave the spawns and 
waits.  I think you can do a -1 wait after the PID wait, and the test 
will still pass.  This should be closer to the original test.

Thanks,
Florian
