[tools] figure out why QA-Power8-5-kvm fails more than malbec
misbehaving worker, nearly screwed up Beta3, something must be different from malbec which is fine.

https://openqa.suse.de/tests/950472#previous is a good example for this issue, as it works on malbec, but fails on QA-Power8-5-kvm even though not always. I tried to reproduce this locally on qemu, but could successfully open install console, so doesn't appear like a product issue.

Me and riafarov ran "Build0396-cryptlvm+activate_existing" multiple times on multiple workers with the same build. (Also a previous build ran twice on QA-Power8-5 with two failures)
Turns out that the QA-Power8-5 worker fails quiet often to switch console while installing (module "install_and_reboot"). Malbec on the other hand runs this job pretty solid and succeeds in switching the console.
So maybe that's a hint; the broken part on QA-Power8-5 somehow influences console switching in the SUT.

I have found tickets about this error for aarch64 but not for ppc. Could you take a look?
