I've decided to not do this as different users might be ok with the risk,
just not the default.

[PATCH] lib/rbtree-test: lower default params

Fengguang reported soft lockups while running the rbtree
and interval tree test modules. The logic for these tests
all occur in init phase, and we currently are pounding
with the default values for number of nodes and number
of iterations of each test. Reduce the later by two
orders of magnitude. This does not influence the value
of the tests in that one thousand times by default is
enough to get the picture.
