Enhancements to the firmware test suite

Registered by Colin Ian King on 2010-10-11

The firmware test suite (fwts) is missing some features that were not implemented in the Maverick release and there have been requests for newer features to be added for the 11.04 Natty release. These need discussing and selecting the correct priorities and feature set.
