Restrict MIT KDC tests to latest Fedora (and not sn-devel)?

I'm wondering if we might be able to, just as we do with ad_dc_fips,
restrict the MIT AD DC tests, eg samba-ad-*-mitkdc to running on the
latest Fedora image?

This would be like the samba-fips test currently.

The reason I ask is this:

This is a good, un-embargoed test for a bug - CVE-2021-36222 - fixed
upstream and included in Fedora.

However it is not included in Ubuntu releases, so if we included it in
samba our pipelines would not pass, which is why Joseph needed to back
it up. 

But medium term we want to include this test, to ensure such a bug
doesn't come back, in both MIT and Heimdal.

It would mean an sn-devel build would be a little less comprehensive
(but faster, due less duplication), but would put off for now the need
to address more complex ways to co-evolve Samba and MIT Kerberos.

(This relies on our good relationship between our Red Hat team members,
MIT Kerberos and the ability to push packages into Fedora, but as we
have that I think we should leverage it). 

What do folks think?
