How about something like:

When testing on a Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6254 CPU @ 3.10GHz the resctrl selftests fail
due to timeout after exceeding the default time limit of 45 seconds. On this system
the test takes about 68 seconds. Since the failing test by default accesses a fixed
size of memory the execution time should not vary significantly between different
environment. A new default of 120 seconds should be sufficient yet easy to customize
with the introduction of the "settings" file for reference.
