[Ubuntu-ci-announce] Upgrade of ADB hosts within the CI Lab

We're trying to work around this and get results for smoke on mako at
least. Francis pulled a mako out of the s-jenkins pool and we did some
some work to get it up and running in the pool for the smoke tests
even though it is on a different host.  The good news, is that it's
now running image 255.  The bad news is that many, but not all, of the
autopilot tests are failing.

I'm trying to sort out what's going on, but we should have something
usable again for smoke tomorrow - either by setting up an alternate
environment, or getting IS to fix whatever hardware problems are
killing the previous smoke testing adb host.
