OK, I can see your point here. However, this is a completely different
change to my original patch. Would it not make more sense to queue my
original patch and then for me to write some patches to move all the
timeout info into the request structure?

Again, this is a good idea but a different change to the patch I wrote

So, what I propose is this. Could you please queue my bug fix (I can
send the two patches again) and then I will begin working on the
generic patches to fix the issues that you've raised in this thread?
How does that sound?
