The jobs on Cirrus-CI sometimes get delayed quite a bit, waiting to

the total run time of the jobs can be longer due to this waiting time.
Thus let's increase the timeout on the gitlab side a little bit, so
that these jobs are not marked as failing just because of the delay.

Whether 80 or 100 minute, consider it

Reviewed-by: Daniel P. Berrangé <berrange@redhat.com>

This pipeline took 1h51m09s:
But Richard restarted unstable jobs, which probably added time
to the total.

IIRC from a maintainer perspective 1h15 is the upper limit.
80m fits, 100m is over.

I think I agree ... I normally don't want to wait more than a little bit
more than one hour, so 100 minutes feels too long already. We already
have some 70m timeouts in other jobs, and one 80 minute timeout in
.gitlab-ci.d/crossbuild-template.yml, so I'd say 80 minutes are really
the upper boundary that we should use.

We are also talking apples and oranges:
Gitlab timeouts are on the amount of time the job runs.
Cirrus timeouts appear to be on the amount of time the job is queued.

If cirrus would just not start accounting until the thing runs we'd be fine.

Unfortunately it isn't that easy. Our cirrus CI jobs are launched using
the cirrus-run tool, from a gitlab job. The timeouts we're usually
hitting are from the gitlab job which is sitting around waiting for
the cirrus job it launched to finish, so it can report back stats.

Cirrus CI does itself have a job timeout, but I'm not aware of us
hitting that typically, unless i'm misinterpreting something.

Right, the problem is the timeout on the gitlab-CI side, not the timeout on the Cirrus-CI side. I've never seen us hitting the timeout on the Cirrus side either.
