Found the culprit in this particular case. This would suppress most of the
weird errno logged in kms tests. 

The questions is now: do we really want to hunt all similar cases down? A round
of gdb through a couple of tests with 'watch errno' shows that it gets set to
non-zero value about a dozen times every single subtest. Depending when we hit
an assert we may get any of those printed out adding to confusion.

I see 3 options:
1. make sure that errno is reset to 0 by everything that touches it and change
my nickname to Sisyphus
2. get rid of printing errno in igt_assert(), but then lose valuable
information for all those igt_assert(write(...));
3. change igt_assert*(expr,...) macros so that they 'errno = 0;' before
evaluating expr

I think that 3 makes the most sense, then we can quickly go through all the
4000-ish of calls we have to make sure that we don't have any weird 'int ret =
write(); igt_assert(ret);' for those functions where errno matters.
