Well spotted!
I just sent a patch that should work on both specs (untested for now).

I think this case would work fine because the kernel config would be checked on
test_pre_check and then the skiplist would be updated during test_deploy (of course
the user would need to run the test with a different spec than make_pkg or install).

By the way, I am thinking about introducing a new parameter that would cause the
test not to skip the test cases but to add a "possible explanation" for why the test cases
might have failed. For example, an extra column in the excel file, additional information
on the run.json file or a message to fuego's log.
