Improve preupgrade test case - Preupgrade_low_/boot_disk_space for review

As we know, preupgrade test[1] used to test by upgrading a system which 
contained one kernel. However, in the real world, users often install at 
least 2 kernels before upgrading to a new version. In such case, the 
disk space in /boot is just enough for preupgrade to download the 
installer but not quite enough to run the installer and install the new 
kernel after reboot. Therefore,  the test should include having more 
kernels installed in /boot to more accurately reflect what real-world 
users will be starting from.

So, Preupgrade_low_/boot_disk_space case[2] was added to reflect this. 
In the test case, two kernels are installed on the previous system for 
updating. As expected results, the users should be prompted with a /low 
disk-space/ warning, and removing older kernels allows the upgrade to 
proceed beyond the /low disk-space/ warning.

Please refer to Preupgrade_low_/boot_disk_space[2] for detailed 
information. Welcome everyone to review it and give comments.
