Add unittests of lava-dispatcher itself

Registered by Jason Hobbs on 2011-09-29

Using python's unittest module, it should be possible to test much of lava-dispatcher's code base. Most of the infrastructure in lava-dispatcher is not covered by unittests. This makes it difficult to refactor. This is doubly problematic with lava-dispatcher because it's not always possible to test changes with all types of hardware or configurations used by other consumers of lava-dispatcher.
