As per discussion with Martin Basti, it was decided that this workaround
will only be applied to the current 4-2 branch, not to the upstream. In

That sounds like a reasonable plan for this issue.

upstream the issue itself will (supposedly) be solved

Except currently it's not, so (IIUIC) you will keep having
nondeterministic failures in master.

I was mostly interested in the general approach that we have to
workarounds -- how do we track them, how do we make sure they don't
stick in tests forever, even after the issue was already properly
addressed.

That's actually a great point. I personally would like tickets to have one more field: "workaround" containing the address of a workaround in the format "path_to_the_file:line_number" or better even - a commit id of this workaround, so that once the ticket is resolved, we could easily find what to reverse.
