Bug Description

== SRU Justification ==
This cpu-hotplug test will always return PASSED even if there are some failures there:

== Fixes ==
8fe6e53a8ed5f0 (selftests/cpu-hotplug: exit with failure when test occured unexpected behaviors)

For newer releases, they already have this patch.
For Trusty and older release, they will need more work to get this patch.

== Regression Potential ==
None, fix for testing tools.

For Trusty, it's missing another 20 commits to reach 8fe6e53:

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1809699

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
