But it might not be true that it was blocked.  Maybe the version of
osstest used didn't have that step at all, for example.

The best you could say would be something like
  "not run; fail in XXX REGR. vs. YYY"
but that poses more questions than it answers.

Perhaps sg-report-flight could, if there are any blockages of the form
`fail in XXX REGR. vs YYY', add a note below the blockage section,
saying something like `XXX examined since needed to justify other
failures, see below'.

I'm a bit reluctant to suggest this because it is, essentially,
boilerplate - it would always say the same thing about any `fail in
XXX' - and filling reports like this with boilerplate isn't always a
good idea.

I'll send a patch.
