A number of regression tests have designated short timeouts
and have been the cause of intermittent test failures on
slow machines or on builds with slower runtime execution
speeds, e.g. -Xcomp, etc.
The jtreg regression harness uses 2 minutes as the default
timeout value for forcing a test failure.
Some tests designated less than 120 seconds as a preferred
timeout value. This changeset removes timeouts set lower
than the default jtreg limit.
To accommodate slower configurations the harness is run
with a 4x timeoutFactor from the default test makefile.
JTREG_TIMEOUT_OPTION = -timeoutFactor:4
This ensures that slow machines are not terminated
prematurely on automated regression test runs.
