I guess that means we need to drop this code from piuparts: (?)

git/piuparts$ rgrep adt *        self.adt_virt = None    # a chroot but is actually provided by an adt virtualisation server.        logging.debug('adt-virt << %s', r)        logging.debug('adt-virt >> %s', cmd)            logging.debug('adt-virt || %s' % self._cmdline)        logging.error("adt-virt-* error: " + m)    #  adt-virt revert    parser.add_option("--adt-virt",                      help="Use CMDLINE via autopkgtest (adt-virt-*)"    if opts.adt_virt is None:        settings.adt_virt = None        settings.adt_virt = VirtServ(opts.adt_virt)    if settings.adt_virt is None:    return settings.adt_virt    if settings.adt_virt is not None:        settings.adt_virt.shutdown()

which aint a big loss as nobody seems to know how to use it anyway, see
#815084 piuparts: add piuparts.1 and README documentation for --adt-virt
