The change 1f70b0a ("lib/tst_test.c: add 'needs_drivers' option with
tst_check_drivers cmd") and subsequent changes to tests to use
.needs_drivers caused some tests from older LTP releases to longer run
successfully under Android.

Android's modprobe currently lacks a dry-run mode, so it will return a
positive error code when invoked as 'modprobe -n', which pessimistically
disables tests that could run (such as fsetxattr2) with a TCONF status.

Even if this was fixed, Android systems might not have the
modprobe.*.bin files available to determine which drivers were built
into the kernel, so this probing method does not work for Android.

For now, allow tests that set .needs_drivers to continue to run under
Android by assuming that drivers are always present. The Android
ecosystem has other ways to enforce the presence of kernel features.
