yes I know and now we have a further problem that potentially is related
to this.

My main intention is that we agree on a general approach how we can
address such problems in the future. And the easiest way is to do such
changes on a branch first.

Breaking a build bot is not problem as long as we can fix the problems
immediately. Revert otherwise until a better fix is found. Disabling for
example debug support on a platform is of course a problem that we
should take serious and have to avoid.
