tests: Remove unnecessary subprocess from dataset tests

Philip Withnall requested to merge pwithnall/glib:dataset-failure into main

The dataset tests are using a subprocess to catch possible deadlocks within the test_datalist_clear() test. However, that’s causing occasional spurious test failures on the slower CI runners, where the subprocess can take longer than 500ms to run due to the machine being overloaded.

Remove the subprocess from the test, and allow the test to deadlock if it fails. The Meson test harness has a timeout for catching things like this.
