Yes, it doesn't fail here:

[    9.044254] test_uuid: all 18 tests passed
[   10.685486] XArray: 19496249 of 19496249 tests passed
[   10.794246] test_memcat_p: test passed

I notice your logs show it taking over 30 seconds to reach this same
point in boot, so I'm relatively confident in my diagnosis that your
testing machines are overloaded and that's inducing this problem.
