[libcxx-dev] ninja check-libcxx failing when running under sudo

The tests fail because they're trying to cause errors and test error
reporting in filesystem. Normally via removing permissions from a
filesystem entity, then attempting to read or manipulate it.
Testing for error conditions in filesystem is tricky. For example, you
can't reasonable test for an out-of-space condition. The EPERM tests are
often the only tests that exercise the failure paths.
