I wasted quite a lot of time yesterday trying to track down which patch
had caused the failure.  If you know that a patch introduces testsuite
failures that you suspect are benign, it would be good if you could
highlight this to the relevant maintainers.  Not everybody has time to
read every message sent to the lists from top to bottom (though I try to
if I'm on CC), so please CC the relevant people in these cases.
