Marked test expectations: https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/282670/webkit

Tried both on Release and Debug, but I was not able to reproduce the failure using run-webkit-tests --iterations 500 --force http/tests/media/hls/video-controller-getStartDate.html.

I was actually able to reproduce the failure with -f flag.

I tried bisecting again and found that I couldn't reproduce the failure with the revision that I was able to reproduce before (r281960).

I was still able to reproduce the failure with TOT. The test has been flaky for long time, but it looks like it became more flaky recently. That might be why.

I was able to reproduce the failure with r283204 but it passed with r283199. (No revisions in between). It looks like https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/283204/webkit caused the test to be more flaky.
