Description Richard W.M. Jones 2009-06-11 14:17:32 UTC
If 'make check' fails, it sometimes hangs (because the
underlying qemu process also hangs under many different
circumstances).

Instead, 'make check' should fail after a suitable timeout.

Possibly a simple way to implement this would be to add
alarm (LARGE_NUMBER) to tests.c.  'tests.c' is the first
test which runs, and so is the one which is likely to
hang.

I'm embarrassed to say that this bug has reappeared
