[lltx] luaotfload refuses to load bold font of some font family

Hello lualatex-dev folks,

I wanted to chime in and let you know that I've encountered a similar
issue.  Please see attached for a minimal LaTeX example, along with
otfinfo and several log, PDF outputs for comparison.  (I'm not a TeX
user, at least not directly.)

Here is the example inline for your convenience:


\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont{Linux Biolinum O}



This is upright text.
\textbf{This is boldface text.}
\textit{This is italic text.}
\textbf{\emph{This is boldface italic text.}}

Notice how the PDF generated by XeLaTeX appears correctly: the title is
bold upright, and the body text is bold, italic, and bold italic where
it should be.  However, in the PDF generated by LuaLaTeX there is a bold
italic title, and all of the body text is regular upright.

Applying this stopgap fix helps but not completely.  Observe that the
title is still bold italic.  (Could this be an unrelated issue?)
