Thanks for filing this bug report and the patch.
It looks like test/support.py is packaged within the python3-test subpackage, rather than within the python3 core package.
Am I right in guessing that you're using test.support for a 3rd-party test suite (i.e. external to python3 itself)?
Correct, I have submitted an rpm for python3-iniparse and I found that python3 lacked this specific module.
The same module (called test_support.py in python2 was packaged together with the python(2) package, so I assumed that this package belongs to the python3 core package rather than with the python3-test package.
Another reason for including this file into the core python3 package is that this module is part of the python standard library.
I just noted that in the new python3 package this fix is not present.
