bug#25618: 25.1.91; More precise limit for tagging expensive tests

Prefer set a numeric limit of seconds than using the word 'few'.

For instance, in my box the test `cl-seq-test-bug24264' in
test/lisp/emacs-lisp/cl-seq-tests.el
takes 7 s.
With an explicit numeric threshold is easier to decide whether this test
must be tagged as expensive or not.

In following patch i define a few as 2-3 seconds.  Other people might
prefer 4-5 or even higher.
Please, suggest a proper value to consider a test as expensive.
