Nobody said it was going to be a silent failure.  However a failure on say ARM 
shouldn't stop the very important kernel build from succeeding on 
i386/x86_64/ppc/ppc64.  It should throw off alarms to the kernel maintainer 
and to the arch maintainer for ARM and it should be looked into.  It just 
should NOT stop or hinder the progress of Fedora on the primary arches.
