[Piglit] [PATCH] tests/igt: dmesg noise is a kernel failure

At least when testing the kernel. In normal programs pretty much all
the dmesg noise would simply be replaced by debug asserts, but in the
kernel we try rely hard to not fall over minor inconsistencies.

Still for CI purposes there's not really a difference, hence don't
treat it as such.

Motivated since once again I've seen a statistics where this was split
up, and then a reduction of "failures" (but in reality just trading
them in for more "warnings") praised as success.

v2: Clamp to "dmesg-fail" to keep dmesg noise easily identifiable
