Emergency workaround: https://codereview.qt-project.org/197753 
(compiles and works for me on bare metal, no test on a VM)

This commit basically disables the test entirely on virtual machines. If any 
QtNetwork developers use virtual machines, please make sure you get bare-metal 
hardware for all three platforms. You won't be doing your job if you continue 
with VMs.
