Hi Morten,

Sometimes the tests report a false positive. Unfortunately, there
isn't a way yet for tests to be reran by contributors. At the moment,
only the environment owners (in this case, some members from the Intel
team) and I (who maintains the "iol" prefixed CI) can rerun the test.

Depending on the patch, the maintainers should realize that a patch
shouldn't be reporting a failure and ignore the result (or rerun if
they are able to).

I've reran the test for you. Although, I've noticed a new patch
version was sent (and passed), so it won't really make a difference.

Thanks
