The timeouts don't seem to occur in any one particular test case, and no individual test case seems to be running for an inordinately long time. I think this builder is just slow, but I'm filing this issue in case there is a specific performance problem in cmd/go or the test itself that we can address.

I wonder if something about the dragonfly kernel or the builder configuration in particular makes the I/O syscalls used by cmd/go slower than on other platforms.

Probably it is the setup. Each builder is running in a VM but the virtual disks are stored in hard disks, not SSDs. Also, we have to periodically cleanup the filesystem more often than in a standard setup, in which the cleanup occurs once a day. If they are causing too much trouble, I could probably move the VMs to another server. Let me know!
