And actually reading the source once again give me the answer: RETVAL  
indeed is unused in setlogmask_xs(), which means its return value is  
undefined, but this doesn't matter because setlogmask_xs() is never  
called. Currently, it's always the Perl setlogmask() function that's  
always used.

Anyway, I've fixed the bug, for the day setlogmask_xs() will be used.  
Thanks for poking me on this.

This is normal: these tests really are for me and are not stable  
enough to be used in the wild.
