Trivial: Update HACKING.rst with stestr

The HACKING.rst testing section is updated a bit to point out
that we use stestr now instead of testr.

This patch also removes the nose testing.

Running unit tests with tox
---------------------------
There are two mechanisms for running tests: tox and nose. Before
submitting a patch for review you should always ensure all test pass;
a tox run is triggered by the jenkins gate executed on gerrit for
each patch pushed for review.

Note that the tests can use a database, see ``tools/tests-setup.sh``

With `nose`
~~~~~~~~~~~
You can use `nose`_ to run individual tests, as well as use for debugging
portions of your code::
source .venv/bin/activate
pip install nose
nosetests
There are disadvantages to running Nose - the tests are run sequentially, so
race condition bugs will not be triggered, and the full test suite will
take significantly longer than tox & testr. The upside is that testr has
some rough edges when it comes to diagnosing errors and failures, and there is
no easy way to set a breakpoint in the Tacker code, and enter an
interactive debugging session while using testr.

With `tox`
~~~~~~~~~~
Tacker, like other OpenStack projects, uses `tox`_ for managing the virtual
environments for running test cases. It uses `Testr`_ for managing the running
environments for running test cases. It uses `stestr`_ for managing the running
of the test cases.
Tox handles the creation of a series of `virtualenvs`_ that target specific
versions of Python (2.7, 3.5, etc).
Testr handles the parallel execution of series of test cases as well as
the tracking of long-running tests and other things.
