[tools] SUT is to fast for wait_boot at initial startup (SLOF on QA-Power8 related?)
openQA test in scenario sle-12-SP3-Server-DVD-ppc64le-extra_tests_in_textmode_ppc@ppc64le fails in
From what i can see on the screenshots, the system was perfectly able to boot up.
The issue here seems to be that "wait_boot" - which is used here to wait until the system boots up - "just" checks for bootloader needles.
I see this the first time. But maybe running this test on a fast enough machine can reproduce this :)
Fails since (at least) Build 0304
It happened 4 non-consecutive times since the last 20 previous jobs.
wait_boot should not fail if openQA misses to catch the bootloader while the system itself is able to boot up fine.
Last good: (unknown) (or more recent)
Always latest result in this scenario: latest
Restart the job.

Sorry okurz but this is no duplicate IMHO.
All tests linked in poo#19194 fail while the system is rebooting but openQA was at least able to see the bootloader once at the initial startup.
This case shows a test which fails instantly to recognize the bootloader which is, according to @rbrowns explanation most likely linked to the SLOF on QA-Power8.
Therefore I set this to feedback and relate it to #19194 ([tools] figure out why QA-Power8-5-kvm fails more than malbec) at least until we know that QA-Power8 is fine.
