test_env: don't strip() printenv results
get_env() was originally written to strip() the output of printenv to isolate the test from any whitespace changes in printenv's output. However, this throws away any whitespace in the variable value, which can cause issues when test code expects to see that whitespace. In fact, printenv never adds any whitespace at all, so there's no need to strip. The strip causes a practical problem for test_env_echo_exists() if state_test_env.get_existent_var() happens to choose a U-Boot variable that contains trailing whitespace. This is true for variable boot_targets. With Python 2, get_existent_var() never returned boot_targets so this issue never caused a practical problem. With Python 3, get_existent_var does sometimes return boot_targets, no doubt due to Python 3's different dict hash key order implementation, about 0.5-2% of the time, so this test appears intermittent. With the strip removed, this intermittency is solved, since the test passes for all possible U-Boot variables. Signed-off-by: Stephen Warren <>
