"out" file contains the (filtered) strace output, "exp" contains the expected
output (judging by the way your test is written).

It's up to the test author to figure out what is to be corrected if the
strace's output doesn't meet the expected one; it can be both ways
(it's one of the reasons to write the tests: to check whether the
tested program behaves the expected way, and tests are an embodiment
of these expectations).
