cmd/go: TestQEMUUserMode is flaky #35457
QEMU user-mode is nominally working (#13024), but mostly untested apart from this one test (see #1508). This unit-test asserts that a simple “hello world” binary can be run, but doesn't verify that any more realistic program actually works, and it practice it appears that realistic programs do not, in fact, work in QEMU user mode (#35254).
I was thinking just delete the test, actually. (IMO #1508 is the proper solution.)
This test-case sporadically detects regressions in a platform that we don't actually support or test. It flags failures, but (without a full builder) ~nobody is actually going to do anything about those failures.
