While the test is blocked, we keep trying the gen12_single_ctx_helper().
As this is using the parent's drm_fd, all of our context allocations are
persistent. Reopen the device in the child so that when we exit, our
allocations are freed along with the process -- avoiding a total memory
leak if the test is stuck.

This does not explain why the test was stuck, it just prevents us from
exacerbating the error condition. Hopefully leaving the system in a more
debuggable state.
