Bug Description

Debian took our Delta in a slightly modified way but ok to sync.
Will allow to pick up two minor revisions.

The only diff that is "missing" to be accepted in Debian is the disabling of debian/patches/adjust-test-scripts-for-debian.patch

That was meant for ", our kernel is new enough" as the patch itself is for: "The test failed in Debian due to the lack of some features that are not included in the current Debian Linux kernel."

summary: - please sync 6.32-1
+ please sync or merge 6.32-1

I'm not sure as the old delta did not explain how important this sub-piece was.
It seems to only modify a small subset of tests - if they are not failing as-is I'd think we could and should sync.

Here is a log how a sync would test [1]:

It would still fail with the same issues which is sad.
So the Delta is still needed :-/

The reason Debian is snot stumbling over that is not only that the debci is not (yet) blocking.
In all I checked in [2] the tests skipped for:
"regression SKIP Test requires machine-level isolation but testbed does not provide that"

That said not syncable right now as I hoped.
Not big enough for a merge to be important.

I also checked if still just "dropping" the patch would continue to make it working, results in [3] - but that failed as well. It seems a full update to how it currently executes is needed.

Checking if Debian has a bug for the Delta - there is none.
But it isn't as easy as to ask them to disable.
Since even then there are issues this needs to be handled in more detail.

Subscribing ubuntu-server but low prio for now.
1. full repro on Debian system
2. adapt patch to match there on a real execution of the dep8
3. check if it would then work on Ubuntu as well
4. submit to Debian
5. make a sync after that is accepted
