parentktest: Add default for ssh-user, build-target and target-image (diff)
ktest: When creating new config, allow the use of ${THIS_DIR}
Typing in a full path when you know that the path exists within the directory your are running is tedious and unnecessary. Allow the user to use ${PWD} if they want a dynamic path name which will be the path that ktest.pl is executed from or use ${THIS_DIR} which is a variable assigned `pwd` and the the variable will exist within the config, allowing the user to change it and affect all other paths using this variable as well Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
