> From Linaro’s validation farm we have the following test results for this 4.9.54-rc1. TI's 32 bit arm board the X15 is a new addition.  Also this time around more of LTP is being run. There is triage to do and you’ll notice that I’m differentiating between ‘known failures’ and ‘failures’ in the data below. The later obviously will get looked at so we can graduate failures to known failures/fixes and improve finding regressions. (Anyone want to help?) In summary I wouldn’t hold up 4.9.54 based on the failures in the new data below.  Given it’s a Sat, the Mrs has plans, I’ve no time to do further digging until later.

/me hands Tom some '\n' characters...

How did your arm64 test build?  There was a build regression in the -rc1
release, are you sure you actually ran the correct image?

Thanks for testing this, finding out the root of these problems this
week would be great.
