With the current patches on that MR, I think I will have CI passing.
 I'll know more once we rebase on master as 
https://gitlab.com/samba-team/samba/-/merge_requests/2028 fixes some of
the noise-generation. 

It is also Saturday here and I should stop :-)

But while there is much still to do to re-enable tests that have been
skipped, I've cleaned up many conflict markers and dealt with the
upstream changes that have landed in the meantime, which is a pretty
good start.

Joseph is also making good progress on landing the Python based tests
that Metze started a while back, see here:

This will give us much more confidence for the merge.  This new
testsuite approach is a game changer, the Python-based tests have found
a number of important differences and helped us fix those.  It makes me
much more confident to pull the trigger here.
