Sputnik tests are very fast. All test cases (15642) run in 394s,
and 5468 Sputnik tests run in 41s on Qt buildbot, it takes only
10% of the testing time.

1127 JavaScriptCore tests (run-javasriptcore-tests) run in 11s,
5468 Sputnik tests run in 41s on Qt buildbot. I don't think we
can speed up Sputnik tests significantly.
