Instead, I think we should mark the tests in the repo itself so that buildbot can be configured to ignore them. The blacklist mechanism we already have would probably work fine. It might be nice if we could supply more than one blacklist argument (if we can't already, I haven't checked). That would mean less messing around with tests that already have blacklists.

I agree with Brenda, we should have a `linux-flapping.backlist` files in the
repo somewhere.

- "Everybody" could add one
- We can somehow add quick comment about why its flapping (or reference to the
  bug number)
