It was simpler to move to requiring run-tests.py to be run as root
rather than figure out how to handle the hwsim phy addition operations
cleanly from python. With that change in place and run-all.sh modified
to use sudo for run-tests.py, these tests work fine on my test server. I
applied the remaining three patches from this set now.
