oeqa/selftest: support sets in devtool comparisons
The devtool and recipetool tests do literal string comparisons, but for some fields the ordering could be irrelevant and potentially non-deterministic. For example, the recipetool_create_simple test started failing with: AssertionError: 'GPLv2 Unknown' != 'Unknown GPLv2' : values for LICENSE do not match The ordering of the LICENSE field isn't relevant. So, if the expected value is a set(), split the string into a set too and compare those. Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <>
