This proposal supersedes a proposal from 2015-11-17.

This proposal has been superseded by a proposal from 2015-11-18.

Description of the change

This is an attempt at fixing bug #1501699.

With this branch, we now take into account the "ever_passed" flag to decide if a test run has passed or not. It has passed if the test is ALWAYSFAILED or RUNNING but has never passed, for all arches.

Many testcases relied on the previous behaviour, so I inserted some 'passing' test results to cause the packages to be held.

There are some delicacies around kernel triggering that I don't fully understand (this is my first venture into britney/autopkgtest) - please check I didn't break anything.

Thanks for working on this! There's a couple of issues here, but the overall direction is sound. Looking forward to this, especially in times like these when the queues are super full.

Don't wait for tests which have never passed

They won't ever block promotion, so we might as well make them
candidates right away (but trigger their tests).
