Travis recently added build hosts for arm64, ppc64le and s390x, so
this is a welcome addition to our Travis testing matrix.

Unfortunately, the builds are running in quite restricted LXD containers
there, for example it is not possible to create huge files there (even
if they are just sparse), and certain system calls are blocked. So we
have to change some tests first to stop them failing in such environments.

 - Added "make check-tcg" and Alex' patch to disable cross-containers
 - Explicitely set "dist: xenial" for arm64 and ppc64le since some
   iotests are crashing on bionic on these hosts.
 - Dropped "libcap-dev" from the package list since it will be replaced
   by libcapng-dev soon.

Alex Bennée (1):
  configure: allow disable of cross compilation containers

Thomas Huth (6):
  iotests: Provide a function for checking the creation of huge files
  iotests: Skip test 060 if it is not possible to create large files
  iotests: Skip test 079 if it is not possible to create large files
  tests/hd-geo-test: Skip test when images can not be created
  tests/test-util-filemonitor: Skip test on non-x86 Travis containers
  travis.yml: Enable builds on arm64, ppc64le and s390x
