  (new) test failures do not necessarily mean that there is something
wrong with your patch. It only means that the system had some new
unrecognized failure modes of some tests :)

There is some automated failure matching with existing bugs, but that
is not always correct.

So in case of new failures we need to look through the failure logs and
try to find out which of these failures are actually new failures.
In this case, I could, with very high certainty rule out this change as
the cause for all these failures. So, the change looks good after all.
