Dear maintainers,

Your package has an autopkgtest, great. However, it nearly always fails
in unstable and testing, while once in a while it passes. Because the
unstable-to-testing migration software now blocks on regressions in
testing, flaky tests, i.e. tests that flip between passing and failing
without changes to the list of installed packages, are wasting peoples
time. Please either fix the test to be more robust, or mark this
particular test as "flaky".

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. For the
failures I inspected the failure always seems to be on the same place.

More information about this bug and the reason for filing it can be found on

Looking at the output of your last test, I also wonder if something
somewhere isn't missing a "set -e" so that it fails on "sh: 1: modprobe:
not found". Is the last test passing correctly?
