That's fine with me and I think the others will agree as well. I don't
think the package is broken on i386 thus a removal from Stretch seemed
disproportionate to me. The last time I touched jnr-posix was in
December 2015 and since then we haven't received any complaints about
its usability. Please note that the tests are not disabled but the
results are simply ignored. I would compare this more to removing the
-Werror flag when building C applications which isn't very useful in
production environments either.

Thanks. That's good to know.
