Example failure:

Successful run on same bot:

In order to debug this, we will need <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=176393>.

I also have a suspicion that this is related to the proposed fix <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178368>.  This is one of the only places in webkitpy where we are waiting for something without a timeout.

The following webkitpy tests also fails on runs that exhibit this behavior:

[379/1691] webkitpy.layout_tests.controllers.layout_test_runner_unittest.LayoutTestRunnerTests.test_servers_started failed:
  Traceback (most recent call last):

      self.assertEqual(self.http_started, True)

We might be able to fix this by booting less iPad/iPhone 7 simulators.
