Bug Description

I hit this issue while working on input-scenario bp for tempest [0], [1].

The idea of the blueprint is to multiply scenario tests based on dynamic data such as the list of images / flavors.
Generating the list of tests requires tempest.conf being available.

With my change in, the gate-tempest-python27 fails when trying to list tests, because tempest.conf is not available. The box where the job runs is not a devstack box, thus tempest.conf is not available.

gate-tempest-python27 should only try to list the unit tests (tempest.tests) rather than the entire list of tests used included in tempest, which is not relevant for testing tempest.

If the complete list of tests is really needed by the job, it should provide a tempest.conf by copying tempest.conf.sample, or setting the TEMPEST_CONFIG environment variable.
