lib: Declare loop variable as volatile before setjmp

The variable used as loop counter in the igt_fixture macro had
unspecified value from the setjmp(3) man page quoted below. Because of
that, in certain circumstances and with -O2 and -Os, the initialization
of that variable would be eliminated and the compiler would complain of
uninitialized usage. Below can be found a snippet that reproduces the
problem with GCC 5.3.1 and 4.9.3 and the errors as printed by 5.3.1.

"The compiler may optimize variables into registers, and longjmp() may
restore the values of other registers in addition to the stack pointer
and program  counter. Consequently, the values of automatic variables
are unspecified after a call to longjmp() if they meet all the following

·  they are local to the function that made the corresponding setjmp(3)

·  their values are changed between the calls to setjmp(3) and
longjmp(); and

·  they are not declared as volatile."
