re: CVS commit: src/tests/syscall

this isn't directly relevant to the discussion at hand, but more
about timeouts in general.

one problem that timeouts can have is with a broken clock, the
timeout will never fire.

i don't think that atf can handle this itself, it needs to be in
the testcase.  there was one src/regress test case that i had
patched to have a hard limit on iterations to avoid this, but that
change got lost.

of course, this case should be considered a failure, but to me the
important part was to avoid the testsuite itself hanging forever.
