  simplify command line by only allowing exactly one test argument

Status in autopkgtest package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in autopkgtest package in Debian:

Bug description:
  autopkgtest for a dkms module with autodep8.

  Content of local control file:
  Test-Command: /non-existent
  Restrictions: needs-root, allow-stderr
  Depends: dkms

  This command fails (as expected)
  adt-run -d --override-control=dkms/dkms.control asic0x --- qemu adt-vivid-amd64-cloud.img

  But this command passes:
  adt-run asic0x -d --override-control=dkms/dkms.control --- qemu adt-vivid-amd64-cloud.img

  In the second case, the test uses the control file generated by
  autodep8 instead of the control file provided on the command line.
