This is not a good long-term idea. That's not the only test we fail on. We
fail on that a good number of times, but we also fail on other tests.

See for example:

Have we confirmed this is not a Gluster bug that we'll be shipping? Because
that'd be quite a terrible thing to ship to our users.

Especially because it also happened in CentOS once, so it's not entirely "a
NetBSD problem": https://build.gluster.org/job/

I've been trying to get maintainers of the component and the test framework
to look at this bug for weeks now. If we only care about failing tests
enough to disable it right before release, that's going to cause more
technical debt than actually catch any regressions.
