The xref tests fail on case sensitive filesystems if the source directory is not all lower case.

For example, if I have Emacs checked out in /home/wilfred/src/EMACS, I get the following test failure:

Test xref-elisp-test-find-defs-defalias-defun-el condition:
    (error "Can't find library /home/wilfred/src/emacs/lisp/buff-menu.el")
   FAILED  12/36  xref-elisp-test-find-defs-defalias-defun-el

Note that the path is incorrectly converted from ~/src/EMACS to ~/src/emacs, which doesn't exist.

This causes the following tests to fail:

   FAILED  xref-elisp-test-find-defs-constructor
   FAILED  xref-elisp-test-find-defs-defalias-defun-el
   FAILED  xref-elisp-test-find-defs-defgeneric-co-located-default

commit 4c6c327
Date:   Tue Dec 18 21:18:31 2018 -0500

    Restrict downcasing in elisp xref tests (bug#25534)
    The tests happen to not fail at the moment because find-library-name
    now has an extra feature, find-library--from-load-history, which
    happens to do a case-insensitive regexp match; but still it seems
    better not to rely on this.
    * test/lisp/progmodes/elisp-mode-tests.el (xref--case-insensitive):
    New variable.
    (xref-elisp-test-run, emacs-test-dir): Only downcase if the
    filesystem seems to be case-insensitive.
