qemuxml2argvtest fails consistently in my FreeBSD guest.

virnetsockettest also fails pretty often for me, certainly
more than your figure; even if that wasn't the case, 1/5
failure rate is way too high for a CI job.

Can we invert the dependency so that syntax-check requires
check instead?

Not that it would be a good idea until the issues mentioned
above are solved and check can run 100% reliably on FreeBSD,
of course.
