Investigate disabling parallel tests in content/media/test
Currently, test_seek.html is highly intermittent, so much so that it has been disabled for b2g. (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=981153). This investigation will enable it for b2g and Android, but not run tests in parallel. On my MacBook Pro, running with PARALLEL_TESTS = 2 takes 11 minutes; with PARALLEL_TESTS = 1 takes 17 minutes.
Got syd's patch in email. Pushed to try: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=939398bcc18f Also, Syd, you need to configure your editors to use linux only line endings. Please attach your patches here.
Please refer to . We should set PARALLEL_TESTS to 1 only in test_seek.html when it is B2G or Android in order not to slow down tests on other platforms.  http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/file/4024d8019701/content/media/test/manifest.js#l258
jwwang: Your point is certainly well-taken. Right now we are doing investigation. If indeed we decide to proceed in this direction, we will be doing what you suggest. Thanks!

This patch caused too many failures as many tests depend on PARALLEL_TESTS being > 1. Investigation subsumed by 1036992.
