There are cases where the test is not expecting to have the transaction
aborted, but, the test process might have been rescheduled, either in the
OS level or by KVM (if it is running on a KVM guest machine). The process
reschedule will cause a treclaim/recheckpoint which will cause the
transaction to doom, aborting the transaction as soon as the process is
rescheduled back to the CPU. This might cause the test to fail, but this is
not a failure in essence.

If that is the case, TEXASR[FC] is indicated with either

In this scenario, ignore these two failures and avoid the whole test to
return failure.
