[PATCH, RFC] xfstests: fail test if it causes a kernel taint

Subject: [PATCH, RFC] xfstests: fail test if it causes a kernel taint

This should, in theory, fail a test if it introduces one of
a handful of "serious" kernel taints.  I mask on a few taint
values because using an out of tree module or a non-GPL module
should never fail a test, for example.
