[PATCH] tests: don't require wpaspy installation

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg at intel.com>

Since the scripts must be run from the source directory to
find the tests to run, they can use a relative path to the
wpaspy module instead of requiring it to be installed.

 The python scripts use wpaspy.py to interact with the wpa_supplicant
-control interface. This needs to be installed in a way that python can
-find it. For example, with this command:
-sudo cp ../wpaspy/wpaspy.py /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
+control interface, but the run-tests.py script adds the (relative)
+path into the environment so it doesn't need to be installed.
