prevent Ruby tests getting stuck in OpenBSD
Some of Ruby's tests get stuck in OpenBSD.
This is because of OpenBSD's bug. FIFO gets stuck.
This patch causes all FIFO tests to fail,
so I can run `make test-all` and `make test-spec` in OpenBSD.
Jeremy Evans (who knows OpenBSD better than me)
described the bug here:
