This function can now be called from anywhere to try and safely shutdown
a testcase. It is not optimal as we can't call "all component.stop" from
outside the mtc, but without any proper and orderly shutdown handling of
all our emulation components I believe this is the best we can do.
To use it:
import from Misc_Helpers all;
in your module and then call
You can also pass the function a verdict and a message and it will take care
of calling setverdict, but beware of the following:
While setverdict would accept any number of arguments as log message
and convert them to a log string f_shutdown expects one charstring.
It's possible to use the log2str function to use the log arguments in
setverdict for f_shutdown, for example
setverdict(fail, "Template didn't match: ", tmpl_foo);
Misc_Helpers.f_shutdown(__BFILE__, __LINE__, fail, log2str("Template didn't match: ", tmpl_foo));
