I traced that down to my own cmucl installation;
it was an ancient installation with an ancient ASDF,
so upgrading from the require'd one failed, which was stopping the
upgrade tests.
I tried with the latestest cmucl snapshot, but it's broken (from a few
days ago),
so I tried with the previous snapshot instead, from december, and all
tests passed,
including all upgrade tests (back to 3.0.1 only).
The breakage is in upgrading from ASDF 2.32 or earlier, due to
redefinition of the the superclasses of system.

So, everything's fine, after all (except the latest cmucl snapshot — I
sent mail to the maintainer about that).

I'm restoring the cmucl upgrade tests.
