But the test can pass if you run it by hand, it looks like the wait command needs some time to wait for the KVM to boot.

Maybe we should check this first by adding some sleep command.

Tested with P8 "modoc" + Bionic 4.18 kernel

It won't pass the test and still return:
uvt-kvm: error: libvirt domain 'bjf-test' is not running.
