[qemu-s390x] [PATCH 05/18] Acceptance tests: introduce arch parameter an

From: Cleber Rosa
Subject: [qemu-s390x] [PATCH 05/18] Acceptance tests: introduce arch parameter and attribute
Date: Thu, 17 Jan 2019 13:56:15 -0500

It's useful to define the architecture that should be used in
situations such as:
 * the intended target of the QEMU binary to be used on tests
 * the architecture of code to be run within the QEMU binary, such
   as a kernel image or a full blown guest OS image

This commit introduces both a test parameter and a test instance
attribute, that will contain such a value.

Now, when the "arch" test parameter is given, it will influence the
selection of the default QEMU binary, if one is not given explicitly
by means of the "qemu_img" parameter.
