      framework: Add aborting option when a monitored error is detected · 21031482
      Olivier Berthier authored
      This adds a policy which advises when the user should reboot the system
      to avoid noisy test results due to system becoming unstable, for
      instance, and therefore continues testing successfully.
      To do this, a new module is proposed. A class Monitoring is used for
      managing the monitoring rules. Two types of rules, MonitoringFile and
      MonitoringLinuxDmesg, derived from the abstract class MonitoringBase,
      have been implemented. The first allow to track a pattern on standard
      files or locked files. The second, derived from dmesg.LinuxDmesg, will
      track a pattern on the dmesg.
      The monitoring rules must be defined in piglit.conf at the section
      monitored-errors. If one of the regex is found, Piglit will raise a
      PiglitAbort exception, stop the test execution -terminating test thread
      pool- and exit with code 3.
      Then test execution resume, after rebooting the system or not, is done
      like usually with command line parameter "resume".
      To call it, use command line parameter: --abort-on-monitored-error
      This option implies --no-concurrent
      This include also a set of unit tests for this module.
