Title: Print duplex test page when duplex enabled

It is easy to enable duplex printing in the YaST printer configuration
module.  However, the test page that is printed from the YaSt module is
only one page long, making it useless for testing whether the duplex
printing is actually working correctly.  To test it you need to make a
two-page document by hand and then print that.  Further, cups has the
somewhat obtuse "Tumble"/"NoTumble" option, and it is not really
obvious what this does.  So it would be nice if, when duplex is
enabled, the "Print Test Page" button prints a two-page document so you
can see if duplex is working and is oriented how you want it.

Since yast2-printer version 2.20.0 a two-page test page testprint. is added and the test page printing is enhanced to let the
user choose to print one (default) or two pages test print e.g. to test
duplex printing, see
