ok, have updated the testboxes to your latest push.

Btw., otherwise the big networking pull held up pretty well on a healthy
range of testboxes i have, it looked a lot scarier to me in the morning
than it turned out to be during the day. A couple of hundred tests
passed already and no indication of any runtime fragility so far. Boot
crashes/warnings can be annoying and hard to get a proper log of but
once the log is available they are normally quite easy for developers to
act upon.
