I'm trying to add autopkgtest support to my packages, I'm however having an issue with hwloc:


 Broken hwloc-nox:amd64 Conflicts on hwloc:amd64 < none -> 1.11.10-3 @un puN >
 Considering hwloc:amd64 9999 as a solution to hwloc-nox:amd64 10001
 Conflicts//Breaks against version 1.11.10-2 for hwloc but that is not InstVer, ignoring

The story is that the hwloc source package provides both a X11 build (hwloc) and a non-X11 build (hwloc-nox). I was thinking that for CI using hwloc-nox is preferred to make the build lighter, but allowing hwloc too is helpful so I can also run the test on my box with the null container. Thus I had set

Depends: hwloc-nox | hwloc

but it seems that autopkgtest does not understand that?
