bitbake: fetch/wget: Add timeout for checkstatus calls (30s)
We had an issue where a webserver serving sstate had filesystem issues so would accept connections but effectively not do anything with them. This causes bitbake to hang whilst processing things like sstate objects inside the checkstatus() calls. It can be replicated by setting up a server like: socat -u TCP4-LISTEN:NNN,fork OPEN:/dev/null and pointing SSTATE_MIRRORS in OE at that address. Adding a timeout to the checkstatus calls of 30s means that whilst the system will pause, it will then continue and not hang entirely. Since there isn't a large transfer here, 30s should be a reasonable response time after which we should fall back to building things ourselves.
