Why do we use --coverage when running the test suite?

> bootstrap as normal
> ./make-dist --snapshot --no-check --no-changelog --no-compress
> tar xvf ../emacs-27.0.50.tar
> cd emacs-27.0.50
> scl enable devtoolset-7  # this enables gcc 7.3.1 as the default compiler

"Hangs" as in "infloops"?  If so, where does it infloop?
Or does "hangs" mean something else here?
