Description

Configuration test mode succeeds even when reference.config has invalid content:

$ echo "this is invalid" > reference.config
jlucovsky@ ~/src/jal/suricata (master) $ suricata -T -c suricata.yaml -S ~/rules/be.rule
[279195] 3/7/2021 -- 08:24:24 - (suricata.c:1615) <Info> (ParseCommandLine) -- Running suricata under test mode
[279195] 3/7/2021 -- 08:24:24 - (suricata.c:1059) <Notice> (LogVersion) -- This is Suricata version 7.0.0-dev (fb6246b26 2021-06-02) running in SYSTEM mode
[279195] 3/7/2021 -- 08:24:24 - (util-reference-config.c:247) <Error> (SCRConfAddReference) -- [ERRCODE: SC_ERR_REFERENCE_CONFIG(175)] - Invalid Reference Config in reference.config file
[279195] 3/7/2021 -- 08:24:25 - (suricata.c:2782) <Notice> (SuricataMain) -- Configuration provided was successfully loaded. Exiting.
jlucovsky@ ~/src/jal/suricata (master) $ echo $?
0

The expected behavior is to have a return code of 1 for the last step.
