    tests/avocado: re-factor igb test to avoid timeouts · 9f951114
    Alex Bennée authored
    The core of the test was utilising "ethtool -t eth1 offline" to run
    through a test sequence. For reasons unknown the test hangs under some
    configurations of the build on centos8-stream. Fundamentally running
    the old fedora-31 cloud-init is just too much for something that is
    directed at testing one device. So we:
      - replace fedora with a custom kernel + buildroot rootfs
      - rename the test from IGB to NetDevEthtool
      - re-factor the common code, add (currently skipped) tests for other
         devices which support ethtool
      - remove the KVM limitation as its fast enough to run in KVM or TCG
