The flakiness in build results we are seeing on mips* due to that
can be a problem in general. You just got first-hand experience on the 
impossibility of debugging a problem that happens only on some buildds.

ARM builds are currently a variety of hardware, and there are literally 
dozens of cpu feature extensions some whom are implemented on a given cpu.

On x86 it is out of your control whether all buildds are Intel or all 
buildds are AMD or whether buildds are mixed.

BTW: xtensor-blas/mipsel did just FTBFS due to this problem:
