Version is CVS-latest, checked out last night.

Some of the failures were obvious: kernel module syscalls were failing,
as I would expect them to if they had not been updated for 2.5.x module
support. There were also a couple signal-related things, IIRC.
Unexpected failures included some file locking test failures.

Anyway, don't worry... you will be getting more concrete info soon :) I
am tracking down right now why the 2.5.x floppy driver ends all I/O
requests with an error. After that, I'll have output from a full LTP
run for you :)
