I also find it problematically slow. Recently I identified these
particularly slow tests:

tramp-test11-copy-file 11s
tramp-test12-rename-file 13s
tramp-test21-file-links 24s
tramp-test38-special-characters 9s

Things are much faster for me with TEST_LOAD_EL=no (35s v 1m35s). 
I wonder about the utility of that setting being yes by default.
For me, faster, more frequent testing, with the option to re-run and get
more details from failures if they occur, is better than than the
current default.
