[Buildroot] [PATCH v5 04/11] autobuild-run: use **kwargs to avoid explicit parameter passthroughs

From: Thomas De Schampheleire <thomas.de.schampheleire at gmail.com>

The current version of autobuild-run has some extensive explicit
parameter passing, for example:

- fixup_config needs sysinfo, passed via gen_config, in turn via
  run_instance, in turn via main.
- send_results needs username/password settings, passed via
  run_instance, in turn via main.

Everytime a leaf function needs an extra parameter (for example coming
from the arguments or config file), the entire call chain needs to be
adapted to pass along that parameter.

This patch introduces the **kwargs dictionary principle, that allows
implicit parameter passing. A function can accept this dictionary and
extract parameters from it by name. The dictionary can be passed as a
whole to a child function, without explicitly enumerating which entries
in the dictionary are needed in the child.

v5: use dict(foo = A, bar = B) instead of { 'foo' = A, 'bar' = B } as this
    is more readable.
