Commit Message

The eeh-basic test got its own 60 seconds timeout (defined in commit
414f50434aa2 "selftests/eeh: Bump EEH wait time to 60s") per breakable
device.

And we have discovered that the number of breakable devices varies
on different hardware. The device recovery time ranges from 0 to 35
seconds. In our test pool it will take about 30 seconds to run on a
Power8 system that with 5 breakable devices, 60 seconds to run on a
Power9 system that with 4 breakable devices.

Thus it's better to disable the default 45 seconds timeout setting in
the kselftest framework to give it a chance to finish. And let the
test to take care of the timeout control.

I'd prefer if we still had some timeout, maybe 5 or 10 minutes? Just in
case the test goes completely bonkers.

cheers

OK, let's go for 5 minutes.
Will send V2 later.
Thanks for your suggestion!
