This is great, thanks for being less lazy than me!

On my side, I have fixed the FTBFS on s390x, which was due to some test
crashing. This would need more investigation, but in the meantime I have
just disabled that test.

The archs on which we should disable the JIT are therefore: armel,
armhf, mipsel, powerpc (for armhf I made a test on a porterbox, since
the buildds have not taken it yet).

There is also the case of mips where I can't understand the crash, I am
going to replicate it on a porterbox.
