    QA: add toggle for fewer common instance tests · b498540e
    Iustin Pop authored
    Currently, the "common" instance tests (shutdown, rapi stopped
    console, stopped modify, startup, rapi shutdown, rapi startup, list,
    info, modify, rapi modify , console, rapi console, reinstall, rename,
    rapi rename, rename and back, rapi rename and back, grow disk, reboot,
    tags, cluster verify, rapi test instance, node list, job list) are run
    4 times:
    - one time for plain instance created via RAPI, using client
    - one time for plain instance created via RAPI, without client
    - one time for plain instance created via gnt-instance
    - one time for DRBD instance created via gnt-instance
    This makes the QA long, and is over-doing it (for non-full QAs): an
    instance created via RAPI (either client) and via gnt-instance should
    have the same parameters, but our duplicate tests do not ensure that,
    just that instances behave OK.
    This patch adds a toggle so that we can skip the common tests for
    RAPI-created instances; the creation/deletion is still performed, but
    all the other operations are not. This reduces the time of a "quick"
    QA by ~20% (1h:15m → 1h).
    The common tests will still be run (unconditionally) for
    gnt-instance-created instances.
