Hmm. This seems to be doing some concurrent rhashtable stress testing,
while at the same time doing the RCU stress testing. All with a ton of
other debug options enabled too (ie lockdep etc).

And the result seems to just time out.

I'm inclined to say that this is just "too much testing". Together
with the "it's been going on for a while", I'm going to just ignore
