[tools][sprint 201710.1][sprint 201710.2][infrastructure] Upgrade openqa.suse.de and remote workers to sle12sp3 and 42.3
For a while we have had openSUSE Leap 42.3 and SLE12 SP3 already available, and currently we have workers with different versions of everything.
It was agreed with the PO to do an OS upgrade, not all at once though, current situation is as follows attached to the ticket.
This is needed before we hit Beta1 and before poo#23320 is merged.

- Status changed from In Progress to Feedback
- Priority changed from High to Normal
This task is blocked currently by power8 having a peformance regression: https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1064407, rest of workers still need an upgrade but is feasible to performm just not scheduled yet.
Setting to feedback in the meantime.

Discussed offline with Santi and Oliver, before everything is fully set, it will be helpful to enable dedicated workers with updated qemu to enable virtio snapshot -- so that wayland testing becomes possible for GNOME cases. As Oliver pointed out, a successful example can be seen in o3 where KDE was tested with a later qemu/virtio-gpu - https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/524969

I'd really love to migrate openqaw5-xen.qa.suse.de because grub2 package from the newer release has fixes (#1054453 and #1026511) which I'd really like to have as a supported RPM package (unlike today where I have homegrown fixes).
Do I understand it correctly that openQA workers (x86_64 ones at least) were not migrated to Leap 42.3? Random set of worker I've seen was still running QEMU 2.6 from Leap 42.2.
