autotest: make test results easier to read

Project Member Reported by, Nov 1 2013

Issue description

The autotest output in our VMTests is huge, and it's hard to find the relevant bits. Consider, e.g.,

What I really care about is the names of the tests that failed, and the summary of why each of those tests failed.

What I get is:
- 6044 lines of stuff I don't care about
- The lines I care about, but which are hard to read
- 60 more lines of stuff I don't care about

Since the stuff I care about is neither at the beginning, nor the end, I don't know where to find it.

Moreover, here's an example line of output that contains the information I need, but which is hard to read:

/tmp/cbuildbotO_qTIG/test_harness/all/SimpleTestVerify/1_autotest_tests/results-03-logging_AsanCrash                                                [  FAILED  ]
/tmp/cbuildbotO_qTIG/test_harness/all/SimpleTestVerify/1_autotest_tests/results-03-logging_AsanCrash                                                  ERROR: Unhandled OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/.shadow'

The text is so wide, that I have to side-scroll to find what I need. But since I don't know, from
the visible text, that the lines contain information I need, I skip them entirely.

Maybe we could strip the directory name, and just give the basename? Then I'd see something
useful, like

logging_AsanCrash                                                [  FAILED  ]
logging_AsanCrash                                                  ERROR: Unhandled OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/.shadow'
