tests: shell: README: clarify test file name convention
Since commit 4d26b6dd3c4c, test file name suffix no longer reflects expected exit code in all cases. Move the sentence "Since they are located with `find', test files can be put in any subdirectory." to a separate paragraph. Fixes: 4d26b6dd3c4c ("tests: shell: change all test scripts to return 0") Signed-off-by: Štěpán Němec <> Signed-off-by: Phil Sutter <>
