Revert "dmatest: append verify result to results"
This reverts commit d86b2f298e6de124984f5d5817ed1e6e759b3ada. The kernel log buffer is sufficient for collecting test results. The current logging OOMs the machine on long running tests, and usually only the first error is relevant. It is better to stop on error and parse the kernel output. If output volume becomes an issue we can always investigate using trace messages.
