Thanks for your intention, but I think it just a misnomer because the author of
that elisp file had require subr-x explicitly.

And now subr requirement had been removed in
https://github.com/manateelazycat/snails/commit/4677daf80a8ee6d5202b98d1acde7a99c2294ec9

IMO, missing provide form is a counter-intuitive behavior because almost all
library have one(even backquote.el). I can't find a reason for why subr lacks
this, so I guess adding provide form for subr may breaks emacs bootstrap.
