[qe-core][functional] Implement slow_type parameter for assert_script_run
As we currently do not have the option to use slow typing speed for dedicated script runs we should implement this
This helps us to fix https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/28988

Need further feedback

- Status changed from Feedback to Workable
Stalled since June 2020, but jorauch correctly stated in Dec in the PR "Lets not get this lost just because I lost focus.
All thats needed is a unit test"
This would be nice to finish, either by jorauch or someone else, since we are still plagued by the typing issues.
- Status changed from Workable to Rejected
Just a note: there's type_string_slow util, could be used?
Not really because
type_string_slow is implemented in os-autoinst-distri-opensuse so you can't easily call
type_string_slow from within the os-autoinst call
assert_script_run. But I suggest to simply reject this ticket. There is a reason why that "slow typing" is not that easily accessible within os-autoinst :) The "slow typing" should really only be used in case a user interface in the SUT is not able to cope with normal typing speeds, e.g. grub with its limited character buffer. People try to workaround problems of completely bogged down systems when the system is under heavy CPU or IO load but that can not be pinned down to individual locations but typing slow in all cases is ... well, slow :D So in general the real problems should be identified, not worked around.
