[pmg-devel] [PATCH pmg-api/pmg-gui] update freshclam.conf template

This patchset addresses two small issues in our freshclam template, which
both hit a few users (e.g. [0]) after the last update of clamav (new minor

On the one hand clamav had an issue where complete database downloads where
broken for a while (until their cdn got synced up with the version they
announced via DNS), on the other hand some users later had problems with
incremental updates not working. Since I do recall times where this hit me
(new clamav package resulting in non-functioning clamav due to some problem
in fetching the signature updates) - I went ahead and made the choice of
incremental or not downloads configurable via GUI.

The second issue was that upstream changed the default value of ReceiveTimeout
to 0 (no Timeout) - this also started to hit users with the last update.

While I'm a bit unsure about changing default values during a release, the
change should not cause any regression, and should be even more visible if
the ucf-series gets applied beforehand.
