By the same argument we would need one restriction for every
kernel-related feature out there.  Implementing every type of special
snow flake configuration in autopkgtest is unsustainable, and will be a
maintainance nightmare.

Instead, we have isolation-machine that says the test needs to be run on
a VM, and then one can make the tests depend on the needed packages and
make any other configuration required in the test scripts themselves.
