Can't increase the wait_for_ssh timeout

Bug Description

I have a test that I run with adt-virt-ssh that is taking long to reboot, but there's no way to increase the timeout for the ssh connection in adt-run.
Please, make the wait_for_ssh timeout an argument that can be configured when calling the test run.

What times out exactly? Does it take > 5 minutes for the target to shut down, or > 5 minutes for the target to come back up? Which runner are you using (ssh/qemu/lxc/etc.)? Can you please attach a log with --debug on both adt-run and the adt-virt-* you are using? Thanks!

Sorry, yesterday I left the test running in a loop to see if we hit the issue, because I was not sure if the machine booted. Now I have more information.

This is snappy and we are testing the failover boot. So the target shuts down, restarts, it fails to boot, switches to the previous partition and boots again. Here is the full log:

It's taking less than 80 seconds to boot. We are using the adt-virt-ssh, and it fails on wait_for_ssh, which seems to have a timeout of 300. So I'm confused.

Here's the machine log:

I didn't run it with -d for adt-virt-ssh, so I'll trigger the loop again.

That was fast. Here's the log with ssh -d:

Ok, now I saw it while it timed out.
Here's the adt-run log:
Here's the test bed log:

The test bed prints:
[ 43.036745] systemd[1]: Started udev Coldplug all Devices.

And gets stuck there for more seconds.

That's when adt-run prints:
<VirtSubproc>: failure: Timed out on waiting for ssh connection

After some more time, the machine prints:
Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (development branch) snappy-rolling-edge ttyS0

And I can ssh into it.

So, we need to increase the wait_for_ssh timeout.

summary: - Can't increase the reboot timeout
+ Can't increase the wait_for_ssh timeout
