the output log for the info test

Description of problem: I inadvertently had the dmidecode package installed on a
domU -- and it was causing the info test to run "dmidecode", and that caused the
test to fail because I got the following errors from dmidecode (expected on an
ia64 box):

Wrong DMI structures length: 1257 bytes announced, structures occupy 1259 bytes.
...finished running ./info.py, exit code=1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to reproduce:
Make sure the info test suite is enabled
1.Enable the test plan for a hardware for example:
# hts plan -t storage -e
2.Then run the test suite 
# hts run -t storage
3.After the test suite for the storage finished ,the info test suite will be on,and then you will see the fail infomation

I don't think it makes sense for HTS to handle this sort of error.
