Testing of patches on this list

Russell and I, with some help from Daniel, are now testing patches on
this list as they come in using snowpatch. Hopefully, this will allow us
to catch test failures before Travis CI (which only triggers after
patches are merged).
Test results will be posted to Patchwork and visible on the patch list
and patch details pages at
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/patchwork/list/, along with a link
to the build log.
We're running the --quick-tox test suite, so no Selenium tests (they
seem to be a bit flaky, and they add significantly to test run time).
Right now, we only report success or failure based on whether the patch
passes or fails the entire quick-tox suite - we don't break it down by
configuration. However the log should give enough information to work
that out. At some point we'll figure out how to do pep8 reporting as well.
At the moment the only reporting is via the patchwork interface, no
email alerts or anything.
This is experimental for the time being, we'll likely run into a few
problems along the way. Comments and feedback welcome! Patchwork is a
nice low traffic project for us to dogfood our own API on before we
switch this on for LinuxPPC...
Apologies for the noise on the list as we tested this setup!
Thanks to Joel Stanley for helping us with Jenkins setup, and a certain
bookstore-turned-cloud-provider for having a free tier of VMs for us to
run our tests with...
