-v for verbose

./raise -v -n build

This is a mismatch between raisin's build dependency list and osstest's.
I thought that OSSTest might not want to add pciutils-dev as a
dependency, this is why I didn't add it. On the other hand I would like
to keep it in Raisin as it is required for passthrough.

It is an "optional" dependency, without it passthrough is disabled in
qemu-traditional. Passing -n tell raisin to "shut up, do nothing and
continue", so at the end the build still succeed..

Yes, I agree.
