[PULL v2 02/11] tests/avocado/machine_aspeed.py: Reduce noise on the console for SDK tests
Posted by Alex Bennée 2 months, 1 week ago
From: Cédric Le Goater <clg@kaod.org>

The Aspeed SDK images are based on OpenBMC which starts a lot of
services. The output noise on the console can break from time to time
the test waiting for the logging prompt.

Change the U-Boot bootargs variable to add "quiet" to the kernel
command line and reduce the output volume. This also drops the test on
the CPU id which was nice to have but not essential.
