[pbs-devel] [RFC 0/2] backup client: implement some HTTP timeouts

Not a comprehensive overhaul, but should fix the most common hangs to at least
finish *sometime*. Tested on an intentionally slow PBS with VM backups - QEMU
still hangs, but resumes to work after 20 seconds as intended.

20 seconds was chosen by fair dice roll, seems to be a good limit for opening an
HTTP connection (so not counting actual data transfer)?

Disclaimer: The 'proxmox' patches were a *bit* over my head, so I hope the
generics and stuff make sense, appreciate any feedback there - it's certainly
interesting to play with higher-level Rust like this, would love to learn :)
