[sles][functional][s390x] test an existing installation
So we can schedule a whole bunch of tests based on an already installed machine
- AC1: Any "extra tests" is scheduled on any s390x, e.g. for "SLE 15 functional"
- As zVM does not provide us with an image saving/loading feature we should go with s390x-kvm. Scheduling "extra_tests_filesystem" or "extra_tests_in_textmode" should be fine. I think we have them in the test development group already? (1-4h)

#7 Updated by okurz over 5 years ago
as described in #12330 for zVM we just assume subsequent jobs to run on the same machine immediately as long as the worker class restricts the scenarios to run only on one so we are able to trigger tests on existing installations but only in serial execution. For zKVM we now have proper image handling so that spawning jobs based on images of existing installations should be feasible.
#13216 is a followup with a specific example, i.e. trigger extra tests on s390x.
