[functional][u][s390x][zvm] test fails in reconnect_s390 - could not connect to host causing many incompletes
openQA test in scenario sle-15-SP1-Installer-DVD-s390x-btrfs@s390x-zVM-ctc fails in
trying to reach the host over ssh, see the messages in https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2325162/file/autoinst-log.txt . We already try for multiple minutes multiple times. I will also report a product issue about this as I am pretty sure test code did not change and this happens now reproducibly with the product. However, our tests do not handle this well. incompletes should be avoided.
Fails since https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2312987 for 10 builds in a row now.
Tests should not fail as incomplete in the case of not being able to reach the remote
Always latest result in this scenario: latest

We would expect the test to fail and not complete. What is happening:
[2018-12-12T11:09:09.080 CET] [debug] Could not connect to firstname.lastname@example.org, Retry [2018-12-12T11:09:19.080 CET] [debug] Backend process died, backend errors are reported below in the following lines Failed to login to email@example.com at /usr/lib/os-autoinst/backend/baseclass.pm line 1195.
So there is a call to "die" but it is in the backend and not the test context, see
Somehow we need to forward that information to test context

WIP PR which implements a common baseclass for remote backends to reuse the activate function as well as the error handling for both, VNC and SSH remote consoles:
