(ITS#3528) add time limit options for bind and exop requests

If I'm reading the code right, all bind requests and exop requests issued by
libldap are allowed to block indefinitely.
In cases where a TCP connection to a server will succeed, but the server is
unresponsive (one contrived example would be if the server were stopped by
SIGSTOP), a client which connects and attempts a simple bind will block until
the server responds, which may be never.
Additional API-level options which influence this behavior on the client side
could be useful for working around this scenario.
