It's not quite clear from Travis CI documentation [1] whether
"travis_wait 40" extends the "no output timeout" by extra 40 minutes
or it extends the timeout to 40 minutes.

By the way, there is another build timeout described in Travis CI
documentation [2]: build job is terminated when it takes longer than 50

I've actually seen this 50 minutes timeout in strace builds when I tried
to update Travis CI configuration from Trusty to Xenial [3] or Bionic [4].
