ATF calls the registered clean-up routines even when a test case has
explicitly been skipped in its body.  Although there may be some use cases
that warrant this behavior, practically all of the NetBSD test cases that
use atf_tc_skip() or atf_skip() do it as the first thing in the test cases'
bodies. By implication, and at least in some cases (e.g., a heavy clean-up
routine; see tests/sbin/ifconfig/t_random_garbage) the same
skip-declarations need to be duplicated to the clean-up routines.
See, e.g., /tests/sbin/ifconfig/t_tap:
Do not call the clean-up routines in these special cases?
