You might know if it's hex if the number happes to have a-f in it.
Othwerwise you can't tell since we don't use a 0x prefix.
Another option is to fix the size assumptions about the string on
both kernel and igt side.
And a third option would be to have the kernel return 'count & 0xffffff'
which would fit in the 8 characters allotted. igt wouldn't need to be
changed in this case. That might actually make some sense since on
gen3/4 the hw frame counter is only 24 bits. If userspace would have
to deal with wraparound it could just assume that it occurs at 2^24.
Actually now that I think about the current tests are probably broken
if the counter wraps sooner than 2^32. But since the interface can't
even carry such large frame counter numbers the test will simply fail
in other ways until the kernel gets fixed.
