Good point. How about I do the same thing I do in sockopt_inherit tests:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/bpf/bpf-next.git/tree/tools/testing/selftests/bpf/prog_tests/sockopt_inherit.c#n73

	err = listen()
	pthread_cond_signal()
	if (CHECK_FAIL(err)) {
		return;
	}

Should fix the problem of getting stuck forever without any timeouts.
I'll send a v2 later today.
