There are two things we can do to improve that:

1) Make the tests faster.  This benefits everyone and should be a
side-effect of moving to the new multi-threaded LayoutTest driver.

2) Teach webkit-patch land how commit even if someone committed while
it ran.  I have an experimental patch for this that I can finish.
