Not actively, to be honest.

Which is the main reason for it being difficult to look into without
seeing it oneself. Two things are possibly noteworthy: This again
is an issue only ever seen with qemuu (just like the migration issue
on the stable branches), and the other day there was a report of
posted interrupts causing spurious hangs, which raises the question
whether the increased failure rate was perhaps due to the new
osstest host system pool having got extended at around that time.
(As noted in a reply to that report, this possible issue can't be an
explanation for the issue on the stable trees, as 4.3 doesn't support
posted interrupts yet.)
