SH4 is very slow compared with other inclusion architecture.
A CPU clock is 600Mhz.
Now, there is not a CPU with the clock beyond this of SH4.

These CPUs are used also embedded.
However, since these are used for servers, they use CPU faster than
CPU for other embedded for buildd.

Yes, SH4 is slower than the architecture currently supported officially.

As you have pointed out, I think that a problem is solved by extending
the time of timeout.
Would you correspond this?
