This function adds a log file path to the merkyl process on the
appliance. This is relevant only for the duration of the test. At
the end of the test, the file is removed from the merkyl tracker.
Note that this is a blocking call, ie, we ensure that the file
is being logged by merkyl, before we continue. This is important
and prevents the file_add operation being queued and processes
which generate log information activating before the log is being
monitored. This is achieved using the grab_result switch, but
in fact, nothing will be received.
It is worth noting that the file path must be "discoverable" by merkyl.
This may mean editing the allowed_files prior to deploying merkyl.
