Bug#970345: cl-usocket: autopkgtests depend on unrestricted access to the internet

Hi Michael,

Quoting from /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest/README.package-tests.rst.gz:

 In general, tests are also allowed to access the internet. As this
 usually makes tests less reliable, this should be kept to a minimum; but
 for many packages their main purpose is to interact with remote web
 services and thus their testing should actually cover those too, to
 ensure that the distribution package keeps working with their
 corresponding web service.

Precisely, the main purpose of cl-usocket is to provide network
functionality to Common Lisp programs; so it cannot be meaningfully
tested without network access.

Hence the current situation seems perfectly in line with Debian
practices, and I fail to see any bug.

The problem therefore looks Ubuntu-specific. I am however willing to
consider a patch that disables the network-enabled tests on Ubuntu.
