oeqa/lib/utils/postactions: fix host disk usage stats retrieval
The recently introduced postactions module can raise, on failing ptests, the following warning: WARNING: core-image-ptest-glib-2.0-1.0-r0 do_testimage: Can not get host disk usage: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/bin/df' The issue is likely not happening because of df absence (to be confirmed amongst the variety of workers) but because of the wrong path. Fix it by letting subprocess search for df, passing only the binary name. To make it work, we also have to reset the environment, otherwise the environment configured before running bitbake will be used, and search will fail. Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
