support/scripts/boot-qemu-image.py: boot Qemu images with Qemu-system.
This script is intended to be used by gitlab CI to test at runtime Qemu images generated by Buildroot's Qemu defconfigs. This allows to troubleshoot different issues that may be associated with defective builds by lanching a qemu machine, sending root password, waiting for login shell and then perform a shutdown. This script is inspired by toolchain builder [1] and the Buildroot testing infrastructure. The gitlab CI will call this script for each defconfig build but only Qemu defconfig will be runtime tested, all others defconfig are ignored. Some Qemu defconfig must be used with a specific Qemu version (fork) that is not always available, so the script doesn't error out when it can't spawn a missing command. That condition is anyway printed in the log. Finally, the script start Qemu like it's done for the Buildroot testing infrastructure (using pexpect). Note: We noticed some timeout issues with pexpect when the Qemu machine is powered off. That's because Qemu process doesn't stop even if the system is halted (after "System halted"). So the script doesn't error out when such timeout occure. The behaviour depends on the architecture emulated by Qemu.
