All bots abort after 50 crashes or 500 failures, nobody uses this feature.

This line shouldn't be removed, we need --exit-after-* unconditionally. (shouldAbortEarly is always True)

This property was introduced in http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/126044 and
the WTR bug was fixed by http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/126418 in 3 days.
It happened 2 years before, since then we didn't need this hack to make bots
not to exit early. So let's remove it.

On a serious regression exit after 50 timeout is really necessary until the
culprit patch is rolled out. 50 timeouts take 50*35s = 1750s = 29.16mins on
WK1 and 50*80s = 66.66mins on WK2. If we disabled the early exit, it would 
cause infinite builds on the bots.

If we will really need this hack in the future, I prefer adding 
it back as per builder configurable option, like SVNMirror.
