Test suite: clarify comment (refs: #14596)
- All snapshots used by this feature are temporary except "with-network-logged-in" and a couple other snapshots that almost all features use anyway. - It's not relevant whether a disk created by this feature can be reused: on the contrary, here we're trying to prioritize features that use large amounts of disk space _temporarily_. So let's not suggest the opposite. Besides, if the __internal disk is actually reused as-is by following features, we have a problem: every such feature would have Additional Software enabled. Hopefully this is not how our QCOW2 snapshots mechanism works (I did not check yet). - This mechanism is about disk usage in /tmp/TailsToaster, not about memory usage. The situation when a tmpfs is mounted on /tmp/TailsToaster is a particular case, rather than something we can assume to be the default here.
