[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#830571: samba: FTBFS on x32: Testsuite runs infinitely and consumes lots of CPU

Source: samba
Version: 2:4.4.5+dfsg-1
Severity: important

Lately, samba builds have been running into serious issues on the x32
buildds: the testsuite runs for an effectively infinite time (at least
3 days, in one case, though it keeps outputting enough to the log to
keep the buildd timeout from terminating the build).  During that
time, the CPU usage goes through the roof, and top shows that numerous
"samba" processes are running simultaneously and each appears to be in
some sort of busy loop.  The bright side is that none of those
processes consume lots of memory, and there appears to be a timeout
limit on those processes such that there's a limit of about 12 running
at a time.

So, each time a new samba version comes to my buildd, I eventually end
up having to terminate the build manually.  I'm going to try to get
samba added to the x32 Not-For-Us list until this is addressed.
