All reviewed patches have been landed. Closing bug and clearing flags on attachment 418288 [details].
A bunch of GTK/WPE API failures after this revert. I'm gardening them under this bug for now.
Unexpected failures (10)
Unexpected timeouts (1)
Something is seriously wrong here. Carlos and I are both convinced that all these tests should have been guaranteed to fail *without* the revert, because there was no way the WebKitTestServer could have started. And yet the tests were passing. Now that the change is reverted to get back to the original known-good state, and the tests have all started to fail.
There must be something more going on that we don't understand.

Yeah. The tests weren't being run at all, it seems.
Test log from the revision *before* the revert: https://build.webkit.org/builders/GTK-Linux-64-bit-Release-Tests/builds/17973/steps/API-tests/logs/stdio
Test log from the revert: https://build.webkit.org/builders/GTK-Linux-64-bit-Release-Tests/builds/17974/steps/API-tests/logs/stdio
There are many tests (the failing ones among them) not appearing in the run before the revert.
And indeed, trying to run the title-change one, for example, before the revert, shows only the "1 of 1 passed" message without actually running it.
It looks like an issue with the glib test runner failing to report some kinds of failures/crashes. And due to this, there's a chance these tests weren't actually being tested all this time.
