"binary-from-other-architecture" is irrelevant for test data, so the
override is correct. (How else would one test an ELF parser?) I'd add a
comment explaining the override, though.

"source-is-missing" is wrong for
src/debug/elf/testdata/go-relocation-test* because all have been
generated from hello.c, using different toolchains.

src/runtime/race/README explains hso race_*.syso have been generated, so
perhaps the corresponding sources ought to be added as a patch.
