[Linux-kernel-mentees] Testing stable-rc v5.1.17-rc1-g57f5b343c

Given that 5.1.17-rc1 is marked on the stable-rc repo, I attempted to
carry out the required 'stable release contribution' task, ahead, in
anticipation of receiving the stable-review email.

Running kselftest (as root) showed the errors displayed below.

Are these an indication of problems, in my environment, which I must
fix? Or are some of the failures meant to be ignored?

The 'lkmp stable release contribution' wiki isn't quite clear on what
needs to be done with kselftest result if there are failures in it.

Upon checking one of the logs of a test result from linaro - 
https://lkft.validation.linaro.org/scheduler/job/806628 - it is found
that certain tests, that fail on my side, either succeed or are marked
as skipped, on their side.

Thank you,
