For Travis, the list of packages there is what we apt-get install, so
yes, it's found in the normal PATH and we can add to that as needed.

Currently, Travis, GitLab and Azure all use Bionic.  Is the version of
the tool available there good enough?  If not, can we grab only the
tool .deb and install that by hand?  We have to do that for libmpfr4 for
example today.  If we can't then yes, this is yet another thing that we
need to figure out a better way of dealing with between Travis (where we
build QEMU as needed) and GitLab/Azure (which uses a Docker container we
manage, and so build QEMU once).

sudo is available and is working today in all 3 CI servers.
