Should we add a provide form for subr? I ask this question because I see a elisp
file wrote "(require 'subr)" and no doubt that it failed to run because subr.el
didn't provide such feature.

Though it's rare condition because we just use subr.el without requiring it. But
each elisp library should provide a feature whose name is same as filename of
library on regular basis.
