[Xen-devel] [PATCH OSSTEST] Allow longer timeout when creating backing file for a raw disk.

I noticed this dd timiung out when recommissioning the 3 cubietrucks
(picasso, metzinger, gleizes) but looking at the log shows this has
been happening on braque too.

The current code assumes 65MB/s arriving at a timeout of 153s for the
10G file. On arndale-* the logs indicate that it is achieving 95MB/s
and taking 105-107s which results in a warning but not a failure:

   execution took 105 seconds [**>153.846153846154/2**]

In experiments on a local cubietruck I observed it achieving a much
lower throughput of 40MB/s, which seems to be consistent with what
others are seeing:

Therefore calculate the timeout assuming a throughput of 20MB/s, in
practice for a 10GB file this will result in a 500s timeout.
