Quoting Matt Helsley (matthltc at us.ibm.com):
> The robust futex test can hang if the kernel fails to properly set the robust

> Use a timeout to ensure that hangs are caught and reported as failure.
Doesn't seem to work though :) The test still hangs on restart.
Not sure it's worth worrying about this, versus just getting the robust
futex restart fix into the kernel :)
