Add support for blackbox test on android

Registered by Yongqin Liu on 2012-07-09

Why?
We have tests that we want to automate that bring the network interface up and down, LAVA can’t use the device under test’s (DUT) network interface if the DUT is actively testing it so we need to break this dependence.

Context?
This provides a mechanism for tests to be run on android as blackbox, and can let lava to trigger and collect the test result.

What gets produced?
Changes to LAVA that enable the DUT to perform tests on its network interface without affecting the LAVA infrastructure.

Where will the work get put?
Android Git Repository.
