If this was the only test doing it then it might be fine, but since this is going to be running concurrently with other tests, all of which are fetching free ports, the chances of that happening add up.

There is a problem with getting port from lldb-server. If we run `lldb-server gdbserver --pipe 0 ocalhost:0`, it'll print port number to its stdout, but we can't get it using pipes since to do this we need to wait until lldb-server finishes that isn't what we want.
