In fact, I believe /etc/hosts file should not be touched at all.
Hostname resolution is usually governed by the DNS system of the lab in
which tests are running. We do not modify it when perform tests
manually, so I'd rather remove this method at all.
+1, it should not be need. Let me know if it is needed for some reason and I
will have a look.

providing new (and renamed) patch as was suggested in the discussion above - removing manipulation with /etc/hosts file from the tests. The "fix_etc_hosts" function was completely removed from the tasks file. Verification that nothing is broken by this change was done by running some random integration test (trust tests), and also on Milan's suggestion by running a test requiring two replicas (replica promotion tests).

Hi all,

a function 'fix_etc_hosts' in ipatests/test_integration/tasks.py
produces incorrect /etc/hosts file (solitary IPv6 address), and
currently parser is not able to resolve the issue, causing
ipa-server-install to fail with 'list index out of range' error.

Hence I'm attaching patch to fix this issue before parser is fixed
(related ticket to it #6014). The fix is just change of regexs
responsible for creating incorrect file so that all the lines containing
defined hostname are removed, not just specific IP/hostname/shortname
