Looking at [1], most of the recent flight have managed to boot Xen on
the arndale. However, I somehow can't find the flight 144312 in that
list. Do you have any idea why?

The flight in question was not on the xen-unstable "branch", and not
officially blessed, because it's part of my buster work.

I found a second instance in the same flight:

I think it must be specific to buster, but that is rather mysterious.
After all it is supposed to be the same kernel and Xen as the current
osstest mainline is using.  Maybe the new compiler is doing something

Looking at the command line for Linux, we don't pass clk_ignore_unused. Without it, the Linux may disable the clock of the UART if it wasn't shared with another device. This would explain the sudden loss of the console.

The following line in Osstest/Debian.pm would need to be updated:

     push @xenkopt, "clk_ignore_unused"
            if $ho->{Suite} =~ m/wheezy|jessie|stretch/;
