Breaking this out from #47017 as a narrower issue for tracking and investigation purposes.

There still seems to be some instances where running all.bash sequentially (i.e., without any sharding) on the windows-arm64-10 builder runs into a crash. I've observed one occurrence out of 5 test runs on the go1.17 commit this week:

$ go run . -target=windows-arm64 -version=go1.17beta710 -rev=ec5170397c724a8ae440b2bc529f857c86f0e6b1 -watch

run 2 = a test known to be flaky (issue #44820) failed: runtime.TestGcLastTime failed: "gc_test.go:126: bad last GC time: got 1629865473098425100, want [1629865473098425100, 1629865473001007600]"
run 3 = "windows-arm64: Error: Buildlet failed heartbeat after 10.005360314s; marking dead; err=timeout waiting for headers"

This problem doesn't reproduce with a physical Windows 10 machine, so this may be a qemu emulation bug. Back when #47017 was filed, this problem happened frequently, but it seems to have become less frequent since then.

Change mentions this issue: cmd/release: start running release tests for windows-arm64

gopherbot pushed a commit to golang/build that referenced this issue Aug 25, 2021
By now, all outstanding issues preventing release tests for
windows-arm64 from being turned on by default are resolved:

- Issues golang/go#46406 and golang/go#46502 are fixed.
- The other remaining blocker golang/go#47017 is determined to be a
  builder-specific issue (not reproducible on physical Windows ARM64
  hardware) that by now happens infrequently enough that automated
  retries should be able to cover for future occurrences.
  Issue golang/go#47965 is opened to track progress on this.
- The builder performance is good and allows release tests to complete
  quickly, not adding any bottlenecks to the release process.

If something changes, we can revisit this, but information available
so far suggests it's a good time to start running release tests for
windows/arm64 by default.

Fixes golang/go#47017.
Updates golang/go#47965.
