Note we really should not be constrained by what Travis provides as
images. Travis images provide docker, so we can spawn our Travis
jobs inside containers to get arbitrary linux distros. We did this
for libvirt for a while until we switched to GitLab CI. So we
definitely don't need to care about Xenial from a Travis POV no
matter what.
