I don't know why these failed, but you don't mention your environment. 
Are you doing this in a virtual environment?  Unusual hardware?

It could also be a host kernel configuration issue.

There are usually some logs in a test directory that may give you some 
additional info.  You can also look and see what the tests are doing to 
try to determine the cause of the failure.

I suspect you will be OK with just these errors.
