The patchwork now says that all patches in this series failed.

Perhaps something needs to be done about filtering out the unimportant
intermittent noise.

Yes, the full log is absolutely necessary in a case of problem.

Optionally, there should be instructions about how to reproduce problem,
which includes rootfs, toolchain and etc.

The intermittent noise should be impractical to report in the short
logs, telling that tests failed. But probably it won't hurt to have a
warning, like you suggested above, and then also to have everything
reported in the detailed log.
