    ovs-macros: An option to suspend test execution on error

    Origins for this patch are captured at

    Summarizing here, when a test fails, it would be good to pause test execution
    and let the developer poke around the system to see current status of system.

    As part of this patch, made a small tweaks to ovs-macros.at, so that when test
    suite fails, ovs_on_exit() function will be called. And in this function, a check
    is made to see if an environment variable to OVS_PAUSE_TEST is set. If it is
    set, then test suite is paused and will continue to wait for user input
    Ctrl-D. Meanwhile user can poke around the system to see why test case has
    failed. Once done with investigation, user can press ctrl-d to cleanup the
    test suite.

    For example, to re-run test case 139:

    export OVS_PAUSE_TEST=1
    cd tests/system-userspace-testsuite.dir/139
    sudo -E ./run

    When error occurs, above command would display something like this:
    Set environment variable to use various ovs utilities
    export OVS_RUNDIR=/opt/vdasari/Developer/ovs/_build-gcc/tests/system-userspace-testsuite.dir/139
    Press ENTER to continue:

    And from another window, one can execute ovs-xxx commands like:
    export OVS_RUNDIR=/opt/vdasari/Developer/ovs/_build-gcc/tests/system-userspace-testsuite.dir/139
    $ ovs-ofctl dump-ports br0

    To be able to pause while performing `make check`, one can do:
    $ OVS_PAUSE_TEST=1 make check TESTSUITEFLAGS='-v'
