The bug wasn't specific to this buildbot, it was a very old race
condition in the Windows ProactorEventLoop which only started recently
to trigger test_asyncio failures. See
https://bugs.python.org/issue33694 for the details.

> Known issues:
> * PPC64 Fedora 3.x, PPC64LE Fedora 3.x, s390x RHEL 3.x:
> https://bugs.python.org/issue33630
> * AIX: always red
> * USBan: experimental buildbot
> * Alpine: platform not supported yet (musl issues)

Except of these few CIs, the main issue was test__xxsubinterpreters
which is known to crash: https://bugs.python.org/issue33615

To fix CIs and give more time to Eric Snow to look at this crash, I
decided to skip test__xxsubinterpreters. You may want to offer help to
Eric to look into these tricky issues.

So again, except of the few known issues listed above, all other CIs
(Travis CI, AppVeyor, all other buildbots) should now pass.
