Summary0002736: libnslog tests fail with latest check version 0.13
DescriptionRunning tests from libnslog version 0.1.2 that were linked against most recent check version 0.13 produces the following failures:

Running suite(s): Test suite for libnslog
 libnslog: Basic tests
70%: Checks: 24, Failures: 7, Errors: 0
test/basictests.c:86:F:Simple log checks, no filters:test_nslog_trivial_corked_message:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:112:F:Simple log checks, no filters:test_nslog_trivial_uncorked_message:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:153:F:Simple log checks, no filters:test_nslog_two_corked_messages:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:226:F:Simple filter checks:test_nslog_simple_filter_corked_message:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:253:F:Simple filter checks:test_nslog_simple_filter_uncorked_message:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:280:F:Simple filter checks:test_nslog_simple_filter_subcategory_message:0: Captured message wasn't correct function name
test/basictests.c:534:F:Trivial, varied, filter checks:test_nslog_filter_funcname:0: Captured message count was wrong

The failures in question attempt to check the function name logged by libnslog against the expected test case function name. In check 0.13 however, the implementation of the "START_TEST" macro was changed in such a way that the testcase functions have a "_fn" suffix. That is, the actual function name of the test should maybe be treated as an implementation detail.
Steps To Reproduce1. Build libnslog against check version 0.13.
2. Run test_testrunner "basic" tests
Additional InformationWorkaround in GNU Guix package is currently to build with the older check 0.12 package: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/commit/?id=7357b3d7a52eb5db1674012c50d308d792741c48

Thanks, I've fixed the test suites to cope with both variants of check by using the `__func__` macro appropriately instead.
