class infra_FirmwareAutoupdate(test.test):
Update RW firmware in the target DUT.
In production, consumer devices periodically update their read/write
firmware during auto-update cycles. This happens when the firmware
bundled with a newly update image is different from the firmware
currently installed on the device.
In the test lab, this step is suppressed, to prevent devices from
inadvertently updating to a new firmware version as a consequence of
installing a new Chrome OS build for testing. In particular,
because the firmware is updated whenever the bundled firmware is
_different_, and not merely _more recent_, suppressing the update
prevents unexpectedly downgrading the firmware.
Nonetheless, we sometimes want more recent firmware on a DUT than
the image that was delivered from the factory. This test allows
updating the firmware to the installed firmware bundle, using the
same procedure as is used during autoupdate.
