cmd/dist: "unexpected stale targets" on linux-ppc64le-power9osu builder #35749
It's not obvious to me exactly which
Curiously, the other
This issue is forked from #33598 (comment).
I will try to reproduce the problem. I also agree it is curious that it only happens on the power9 builder, which has happened with other intermittent failures too.
I don't know if this is possible but if somehow the value for objabi.GOPPC64 is not set to power9 before all compiles start, and some are compiled for power8 but rebuilt later for power9 then the hashes wouldn't match.
I found that the old power9 builder was still active out in the farm (not running Docker). Not sure but maybe these errors were happening if that buildlet was being used, since the error happened intermittently. Carlos has shut down that buildlet and we will see if that makes a difference.
