In the general case, e.g. tmp and logs this is IMHO a bug (or several
bugs) in osstest.

In this particular case /local/scratch/osstest is the osstest users
$HOME and I think osstest should be entitled to assume that exists.

When we disabled builds on this machine I incorrectly removed this dir
forgetting that it was $HOME and not just a scratch dir (which arises
because osstest is a local user and not a not a global NIS user, and
army uses NIS/autofs for /home)

Yes, for all cases apart from this one I think patches to add a suitable
mkdir would be appreciated.
