I checked the texi files in gcc/doc folder, but can't find a suitable place.
So I resort to README.gcc in gcc/testsuite which is claimed to list notes
for those writing testcases and those writing expect scripts. Following is
the patch. Is it OK?

 If a test does not fit into the torture framework, use the dg framework.

+variable dg_runtest_extra_prunes in this exp file and let it contain this

+Always remember to clear this variable when leave this exp file.
