This script runs a series of standard tests and collects some metrics
(wall clock and size of tmp/). It takes care of dropping vm caches
(for which it need sudo access) and doing a fetchall first.
It uses /usr/bin/time to measure the wall clock for builds (not bash
internal time command).

The metrics collected are:
* time bitbake core-image-sato and size of tmp/ dir without sstate
* time bitbake virtual/kernel
* time bitbake core-image-sato and size of tmp/ without sstate but with rm_work enabled
* time bitbake core-image-sato -c rootfs with sstate
* three parsing time metrics (bitbake -p) with and without tmp/cache. 

The results are collected in build-perf-test/globalres.log for all commits
that it has run, and in a separate folder for ech run (called results-<rev>-<date>)
This is the same script used to collect the results for:
It's still a work in progress and needs some improvements but it should be a good starting point.
