vc-test-rcs04-checkout-model has never passed, even when it was introduced.
If it was an attempt to motivate some VC progress, it hasn't worked.
IMO it should be marked as expected-failure, or commented out.

file-notify-test03-autorevert sometimes works for me and sometimes it
doesn't. I don't know why. Anyway, that's http://debbugs.gnu.org/20392 .

And they smell bad!

Less flippantly, IME it's one or two tramp tests that are slow (almost
as slow as all the others put together). Perhaps some tests should be
labelled as slow somehow and not run by a standard `make check',
only by `make check-all' or somesuch.
