I took a quick look at test suite jobs 1-4 on Jenkins. Apart of the memory erasure tests that fail on devel too, and a few fragile tests that failed in some runs but not others (so can be mostly safely ignored), "Using Totem ǂ Watching a WebM video over HTTPS" failed every time. Before we call this ready for QA, let's test this manually on an ISO built from this branch, to ensure it's not a regression brought by Linux 4.19.

"Run" this Totem test case manually on this branch, works fine. And while I was at it I tested the same with Totem started from the Applications menu, which failed due to a buggy build-time hook (the torification tweak was not applied). Testing a fix.

Tested on bare metal the branch for #16072, which is based on this one. It boots, Wi-Fi connects, Tor Browser starts, unplugging the USB stick triggers successful shutdown: HP EliteBook 840 G1, ThinkPad X200.
Regarding the Totem issue: with my fix (07e0cbed3053ab0407a982654007641fa5865702) applied, testing manually, Totem can read this WebM video over HTTPs both when started from a terminal and when started from the Applications menu. I don't know why the test fails in our test suite, but I guess there's a reason why this test case is tagged @fragile.
So I'm calling this ready for QA. kibi, can you take it?
I suggest batching this review with the one for #16072, whose branch is based on this one. It should be ready for QA in ~3h.
