The last 4 failures, including this, seem to have failed because they
exceeded the 5 hour timeout. This has never happened before, though we
did start hitting the then 4 hour limit in January.

Why is it slower? I don't know. No doubt the combination of the ldb
performance regression in ef240aaca0ef693a967 (committed 2017-12-20),
meltdown/spectre mitigations, and the ever increasing number of tests
don't help, but it seems as if something in the last few days has made
it significantly worse.

Comparing the "TOP 10 slowest" list with one from December in a very
unscientific manner, I see slowdowns everywhere, with the worst being
in vlv, drs.link_conflicts, and ridalloc_exop.
