I will leave this for Joel to decide. He would like the engineering manual to
say how tests are run for the various archs/bsps and he would like to know what
each covers.

MSYS2/MinGW had limited support here and I avoid the packages on MacOS because
of the collateral damage they bring, ie the posts about MacOS tools not building
that appear from time to time.

Try creating a ~/.rtemstesterrc file or any file and pass in with --user-config
and add the BSP as a section and the timeout ...

timeout = 30

The INI values are added to the BSP's internal macro map and this should be
picked up when the process is exec'ed ....
