Looks like this didn't sort itself (yet). Do you continue to be
convinced that it will, eventually?

Hooray for explanations in commit messages.

I will (1) drop this test and (2) force push staging in the meantime.

     make-flight: guest should use jessie to test pvgrub
stretch has 64bit feature enabled for ext4, which pvgrub can't cope.
     We want to continue to test pvgrub, so specify jessie in the guest
     suite field.
A consequence is that this test will test jessie forever. Eventually
     jessie will rot so badly that this test fails and then we will no
     longer be testing pvgrub1.  Hopefully by then no-one will be using it.

Does this mean we should de-support pvgrub? Or even remove it?

BTW, I don't see any reason why someone would want to keep using pvgrub
with grub-pv being available...
