Disable gnulib's test-lock test in packages?

Hello Guix,

Several packages (libunistring, gettext, and libidn) in the guix bootstrap path 
hang on the "test-lock" test from gnulib while building on a aarch64 system I 
have access to.  Some of them already have a patch applied that is supposed to 
fix the hang on system's with large core-counts, but it seems ineffective on my 
system.  The findutils package is also affected, and there may be others, but I 
haven't discovered them yet.

This commit in gnulib fixes the test-lock issue on my system, but doesn't help 
until our packages update their gnulib source:

Not knowing any better, I created a dummy project to run the latest gnulib lock 
tests, attached for clarity.

Until the updated lock module and tests make its way into these packages, I 
would like to ask if disabling these tests outright would be acceptable, 
similar to the attached patch.  Thoughts?
