For coreboot, lets see what the feedback you get is, and we can deal
with adding the test soon like this I suppose.

For nokia_rx51, I assume you mean building qemu and I'm not sure we can
without making the test more fragile for non-CI?  It doesn't tend to be
much of a bottleneck so I'd rather not tweak it further.
