python3 fails to build on ARM

new build for ARM test exclusion
The python3 package in F15 fails to build in ARM, due to test failures in test_pty, test_openpty, and test_float. The issues with these tests are well documented on this bugzilla, already worked around in F14+ python2 and F16+ python3 (thanks!).
However, the F15 failure is blocking our F15-on-ARM efforts.
To complete the puzzle, is it OK for me to commit the attached spec file change, and do a new F15 build in koji? (without pushing to updates - no need).
The patch is made up from two earlier commits to the f16 branch. I see that the most recent versions now handle test exclusions more elegantly, but in the interests of the F15 stable branch I'm thinking that the old approach (taken in my patch) is less risky/less intrusive.
Looks reasonable; go for it (just in F15, though, as you said).
BTW, does the F17's python and python3 build OK on ARM? (i.e. did I break anything when I rewrote the test exclusions to be more fine-grained?)
Thanks for the quick review, pushed and built. I'll get back to you about the F17 version - its building now. We aren't building F16/F17 yet but I figure I can test what you're looking for by building that version on top of F15. I'll let you know.
The F17 build works. Thanks for thinking of the ARMs!

Excellent! Thanks for checking it.
