The livepatch selftests compare expected dmesg output to verify kernel
behavior.  They currently filter out "tainting kernel with
TAINT_LIVEPATCH" messages which may be logged when loading livepatch
modules.

Further filter the log to also drop "loading out-of-tree module taints
kernel" messages in case the klp_test modules have been build without
the in-tree module flag.

Note: I stumbled across this in a testing scenario and thought it might
be generally useful to extend this admittedly fragile mechanism.  Since
there are no related livepatch-core changes, this can go through Shuah's
kselftest tree if she prefers.  -- Joe
