build log and emerge --info (compressed because it exceeds attachment limit, use 'xzless' to read it)
current tests are pretty basic and for package maintainers mostly to sanety-check the kernels.
initrd assembled for test is built from host binaries, often compiled with -match=native (as I see in the flags)
but qemu, which runs the tests can't emulate some instructions in software mode, thus this test often fail.
it should work fine on systems/chroots where's no -march binaries/libraries copied into dracut.
dracut also supports --sysroot option, so tests could use unpacked arball with generic binaries as sysroot, but it's not implemented yet.
I'll leave this open for now.
