Xenstore testsuite robustness: save output rather than rerun on failure.
"make check" reruns a test which fails with more verbosity. If the test
fails intermittently, that doesn't work well: save the output and simply
dump it if the test fails.

mjw@2295 1 Checks for the suitability of a machine for Xen build or install.
mjw@2295 2 To check for build suitability use
mjw@2295 3
mjw@2295 4 ./chk build
mjw@2295 5
mjw@2295 6 To check for install suitability use
mjw@2295 7

mjw@2295 10 The chk script will run checks in this directory and print
mjw@2295 11 the ones that failed. It prints nothing if checks succeed.
mjw@2295 12 The chk script exits with 0 on success and 1 on failure.
mjw@2295 13
mjw@2295 14 The chk script runs executable files in this directory whose
mjw@2295 15 names begin with 'check_'. Files containing CHECK-BUILD
mjw@2295 16 are run for the build check, and files containing CHECK-INSTALL
mjw@2295 17 are run for the install check.

mjw@2295 19 Detailed output from the check scripts is in .chkbuild for build
mjw@2295 20 and .chkinstall for install.
