Tests in lcov instrumented code take more time than normal. This test
was pushing towards 180-190 seconds on successful runs. As a result to
remove any potential issues around tests that run close to the default
timeout of 200 seconds, 2 changes were done.

1) https://review.gluster.org/c/glusterfs/+/20648
Added an option to run-tests.sh to enable setting the default timeout to
a different value.

2) https://review.gluster.org/c/build-jobs/+/20655
Changed the line-coverage job to use the above to set the default
timeout to 300 for the test run

Since the changes this issue has not failed in lcov runs.

Shyam (and Nigel/Nithya)
