Permit "Execute shell" jobs to return 2 for "unstable"

      Description

      Currently, users of "Execute shell" builds must fetch the jenkins-cli jar and execute it in order to mark a build as unstable. For example:

      set -e
      wget ${JENKINS_URL}jnlpJars/jenkins-cli.jar
      make
      if ! make check; then 
        java -jar jenkins-cli.jar set-build-result unstable && exit 0
        exit 1
      fi
      

      will flag as unstable and exit.

      That works, but it's a right pain. The alternative is text-finder plugin string matching, which is arguably worse.

      What'd be ideal is to let the return code 2 mean "unstable" to Jenkins. So one could just replace the above with:

      set -e
      make
      make check || exit 2
      

      I'll see what's involved in adding this, but wanted to put the idea out.
