Public bug reported:

Recently autopkgtest started to consistently fail in ppc64el / s390x.
When testing manually, the kernel dump is collected and all works fine.
By discussing with the package maintainer (Cascardo), it seems it
started after a change in the instance type of the tests, to m1.large.

This seems either a problem in the test infrastructure itself or a likely a 
"timing" problem in the test (i.e., requiring some pause or delay that is not 
currently enough).
This demands investigation because those failures delay the package release for 
all arches, usually those releases contain important fixes.

Also, the recurrent "workaround" is to mark the tests as "force-badtest"
in ubuntu-hints for the 2 arches, which is in practice skipping the
test, so those 2 arches are getting releases untested by the automatic
infrastructure.
