`--failure-exit-code` option (exit status)

The rspec command exits with an exit status of 0 if all examples pass, and 1
if any examples fail. The failure exit code can be overridden using the
--failure-exit-code option.

Scenarios
A passing spec with the default exit code
Given
a file named "ok_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "ok" do
  it "passes" do
  end
end
When
I run rspec ok_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the examples should all pass
A failing spec with the default exit code
Given
a file named "ko_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "KO" do
  it "fails" do
    raise "KO"
  end
end
When
I run rspec ko_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 1
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
A nested failing spec with the default exit code
Given
a file named "nested_ko_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "KO" do
  describe "nested" do
    it "fails" do
      raise "KO"
    end
  end
end
When
I run rspec nested_ko_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 1
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
Exit with 0 when no examples are run
Given
a file named "a_no_examples_spec.rb" with:
When
I run rspec a_no_examples_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "0 examples"
A failing spec and `--failure-exit-code` is 42
Given
a file named "ko_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "KO" do
  it "fails" do
    raise "KO"
  end
end
When
I run rspec --failure-exit-code 42 ko_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 42
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
