That warrants a NEWS entry blurb that maintainers that use the
'syntax-check' rule from maintainer-makefile may want to add tests they
don't care about to local-checks-to-skip.  But I think that is
acceptable?  People should be able to adapt these things.

Did you notice any other problem?  Looking through the changes again, I
only see syntax-check related stuff, or harmless stuff.
