Glad that we found the reason. We should add an explicit check in OOB
that gives you a more useful error msg.

Compared with x86 builders, an XO-1.75 is fairly slow, and getting
fast ARM machines has been almost impossible. This seems to be
changing luckily. XO-4s will be fairly good builders I hope :-) and we
are trying to get our hands on early units of Kontron KTT30, which is
the only other ARM board we have seen that has CPU power and good disk

Others (like the ODROID Exynos boards) seem to have fantastic CPUs
paired with very poor disk IO.
