Running any resctrl unit test involves writing to resctrl file system and
only a root user has permission to write to resctrl FS. Resctrl test suite
before running any test checks for the privilege of the user and if it's
not a root user, the test suite prints a warning and continues attempting
to run tests.

Attempting to run any test without root privileges will fail as below

TAP version 13
ok kernel supports resctrl filesystem
not ok mounting resctrl to "/sys/fs/resctrl"
not ok MBA: schemata change

Hence, don't attempt to run any test if the user is not a root user and
change the warning message to a bail out message to comply with TAP 13

Fixes: ecdbb911f22d ("selftests/resctrl: Add MBM test")
