New issue 556: Improve report when slaves collect different tests

Bruno Oliveira:

As described in #437 and #301, a test run stops when slaves collect a different number of tests.

The code that raises the error is:

    # dsession.py:147    
    def init_distribute(self):
        assert self.collection_is_completed
        # XXX allow nodes to have different collections
        node_collection_items = list(self.node2collection.items())
        first_node, col = node_collection_items[0]
        for node, collection in node_collection_items[1:]:

If instead of raising an `AssertionError` in `report_collection_diff` we just `return None` if the collections differ, we obtain a better error message.

Which makes it easy to track down the source of the problem (btw, the above issue has a proposed fix in pull request 192).
