Why would you remove the asm files that implement the required behaviour?

They don't need to be kept "in sync", the i386 port probably doesn't
rely on the C code variants of these functions.

The standard configure, make, make -k check is good enough to build
the library. However, make install has to be used with care, and it
does involve pivoting a root, and rebooting to actually fully use the
new glibc.
