So I tested this with https://review.openstack.org/#/c/59443/. There are 
flaky log errors coming from ceilometer. You
can see that the build at 12:27 passed, but the last build failed twice, 
each with a different set of errors. So the whitelist needs to remain 
and the ceilometer team should remove each entry when it is believed to 
be unnecessary.

This is another use case for the promised 
dependent-patch-between-projects thing.
