Description

Motivation

For reviewers of serial console (virtio) based tests the current ">_" thumbnails appear for all the executed command, the output as well as the prompt sign which is not really adding valuable information and should be supressed.

See https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1151 and https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1160 which adds the option quiet => 1 to various test API methods to suppress on demand. This is already going in the right direction however maybe also a bit too far to suppress also the non-prompt-sign output.
