lxc-device - mock lxc-device command used by LAVA

Mocks lxc-device command used by Linaro Automated Validation Architecture (LAVA). LXC is Linux Containers userspace tools. lxc-device does not use LXC. It is part of lava-lxc-mocker, which mocks some of the LXC commands used by LAVA. lxc-device does not do anything except for printing "True" and exiting with 0 (zero).


The commands provided by lava-lxc-mocker are simple shell scripts that use the same command names mocking some LXC commands and does not use LXC. lava-lxc-mocker commands still need to be executed in the same sequence as a typical LXC operation. In particular, once a container has been created, that container needs to be destroyed to clean up the symlinks and other artifacts.
