[PATCH] tester/rt: use shlex.split to split command args

The regular split-by-space function used to split command arguments 
creates compatibility issues with many shell command syntaxes. A 
specific example is the handling of string arguments, as shown below:

%define renode_args -e start_opts -e "s %{bsp_resc_script}"

Thus, it is changed to use shlex.split instead. It splits 
the command arguments using shell-like syntax. More about shlex 
module here: https://docs.python.org/3/library/shlex.html
