It's actually some assembler code in the kernel. It was in
ccl:lisp-kernel;sp_lambda.s in 0.13; practically all of the
"subprimitives" are in sp_entry.s in 0.14.
I think that I checked the fix into the bleeding-edge tree early
this evening. I'll try to get it into 0.14 after I get some

I have real difficulty taking the whole :ELEMENT-TYPE NIL thing
seriously. Paul's tests are generally very good and he's generally
very rigorous about things; when I ran his tests a year ago, I
often thought that he was mistaken about something only to read
the spec more carefully and discover that he was indeed right.
In this case, I think that he's misinterpreting a poor choice
of words to say something that I don't believe was ever intended;
if there's a more compelling argument that says that arrays specialized
to the NIL type have to be provided by the implementation (in the
sense that BIT and CHARACTER and BASE-CHAR have to have specialized
array types, but whether DOUBLE-FLOAT does or not is up to the
implementation) I certainly can't find it, and I think that a proposal
to introduce them would have been controversial enough to be memorable.
Thanks for doing this. I found last year that fixing one bug would
often cause 20 or 30 previously-failed test to pass, so hopefully
the set of failures will start to get manageable soon. I'd certainly
believe that a lot of SUBTYPEP failures are legitimate, and I'd also
expect mamy of them to be hard to fix.
