New package update required from jessie-backports.

sudo apt -t jessie-backports install python-voluptuous

This package is used to check the submission schema of V2 test jobs.
It is already installed for V2 support but 2017.5 requires an updated
version which already exists in jessie-backports. For a smooth upgrade
ensure this package is upgraded as above before installing 2017.5.

As with previous releases since 2016.12, the 2017.5 release is only
available from the lava repositories:

New device-type templates

2017.5 includes a lot of new device-type templates and a number of V1
device-type configurations. These have been contributed to LAVA, as
part of the support for KernelCI, by community members. Many thanks to
all those who have contributed device-type support for this release.

Action names and effects on timeouts

2017.5 makes the individual names of actions in the source code
consistent across all classes and deployments. Where previously
power_off was available as an action name which could be specified in
timeouts and protocols, that action name now uses a hyphen instead of
the underscore, power-off. The same change has been made for all
classes across the V2 lava-dispatcher codebase. Future changes will
only be accepted using a hyphen to separate words, not underscores or
other characters.

This change affects V2 jinja2 templates as well as V2 test jobs (if
those jobs override the action timeout or call an action using
