Do you have enough EC2 quota to run tests in (ephemeral) nova instances? In Ubuntu we do that, i. e. I have a permanent "controller" instance that has the cloud credentials and an autopkgtest checkout, and worker instances  which take AMQP test requests and call autopkgtest with the ssh runner and the "nova" setup script  -- i. e. the actual test is being run in an ephemeral instance, with full "isolation-machine"/KVM capabilities like mucking around with kernel stuff. I can talk you through this if you are interested.
