    test/py: Implement pytest infrastructure · d201506c
    Stephen Warren authored
    This tool aims to test U-Boot by executing U-Boot shell commands using the
    console interface. A single top-level script exists to execute or attach
    to the U-Boot console, run the entire script of tests against it, and
    summarize the results. Advantages of this approach are:
    
    - Testing is performed in the same way a user or script would interact
      with U-Boot; there can be no disconnect.
    - There is no need to write or embed test-related code into U-Boot itself.
      It is asserted that writing test-related code in Python is simpler and
      more flexible that writing it all in C.
    - It is reasonably simple to interact with U-Boot in this way.
    
    A few simple tests are provided as examples. Soon, we should convert as
    many as possible of the other tests in test/* and test/cmd_ut.c too.
    
    The hook scripts, relay control utilities, and udev rules I use for my
    own HW setup are published at https://github.com/swarren/uboot-test-hooks.
