Since most of the scripts themselves in xfstests make no mention of
redistribution, and only say "copyright sgi, all rights reserved" etc:

#  Copyright (c) 2006 Silicon Graphics, Inc.  All Rights Reserved.

do we need to do anything in terms of making this look more like Free
Software (assuming that's the intent?)

It might be a rats-nest, there are a several testcases in src/ gleaned
from mailing lists & bugs with little or no attribution; OTOH maybe this
stuff is trivial enough that it doesn't warrant copyright, I dunno.

Is it worth trying to clarify the license on the collection, or is this
just a can of worms?
