Usually, only patches for HEAD code are considered, unless they are
specifically intended to fix bugs in release code.
TIMEOUT is right now unused in the code; have no idea what it was
originally intended for. Support for NETWORK_TIMEOUT in ldap.conf is
already implemented in HEAD; OpenLDAP 2.3 is feature frozen, so it's
unlikely that it will be backported, as it's not a major bug but rather
a missing feature.
