I'm actually not sure it will be so easy for fix some of these. I have
seen breakage of the ghci tests in non-validate build configurations
(see #13243); this can likely be fixed but it will require some digging
as it's not apparent to me what is going wrong. The performance tests
will be quite sensitive to optimization level. That being said, perhaps
we could make performance testsuite failures non-fatal for the Travis
