bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8209566

The fix for JDK-8212028 decreased the timeout factor from 10 to 4. This 
test has been timing out occasionally in tier6 testing.
The timeout could be reproduced by running the test on a solaris/sparc 
host many times. After increasing the timeout to 240, the timeout was 
not seen.

Before the timeout factor change, the effective timeout is: 120s 
(default) x 10 = 1200s.
With this change, the effective timeout is: 240s x 4 = 960s.

     Ran the test repeatedly on a solaris/sparc host with tier6 vm options.
