While keeping them separate, there is no room for interaction between the
fixtures for unrelated test cases.
Each br2-external will be simple.

If we end up moving each test case to the folder of the package it tests (I
hope we do) the fixtures for the test case can be in a subfolder of the package.
And a few years from now, when we remove a package that have test cases, we just
need to remove the entire package folder, because the package folder contains
everything related to it.

There is a small price to pay: the 3 small files per br2-external.
But not all test cases will use a br2-external, only a subset. All current 70
test cases don't need it.
