Found on C-AWS ARM64 (AMD64 is fine) as well, need to check if it can work with LTP_TIMEOUT_MUL > 1

And the next question is how to determine when to use that parameter.

LTP_TIMEOUT_MUL=2 to set timeout to 10min for a test works for this test.
Testing patches now.

Need LTP_TIMEOUT_MUL=3 for KVM nodes. Will push the patch.
