If we want to have a "mini" version of it that stays in
gcc.c-torture/compile, that's fine, but it shouldn't be more expensive
that most tests in the testsuite.  A few seconds at most.

I don't think we should run the full version by default, even once.
It's just not doing anything very useful, relative to the time it takes.
 How often has it broken since it was added?  If the answer is "never",
then it's consumed thousands of hours, but provided almost no benefit.

Let's make it optional, and if someone (including automated testers)
wants to run it, so be it -- but let's not slow down every GCC developer
with this.
