Richard Purdie - Aug. 24, 2013, 12:08 p.m.
The standard python socket connect has long timouts which make sense for remote
connections but not local things like the PR Service. This adds a timeout
parameter to the common xmlrpc server creation function and sets it to a more
reasonable 5 seconds.

Making the PR server instantly exit is a good way to test the effect of this
on bitbake.

We can remove the bodged timeout in the PRServer terminate function which
has the side effect of affecting global scope.
