Merge branch 'sz/maint-curl-multi-timeout' into maint

Sometimes curl_multi_timeout() function suggested a wrong timeout
value when there is no file descriptors to wait on and the http
transport ended up sleeping for minutes in select(2) system call. A
workaround has been added for this.

* sz/maint-curl-multi-timeout:
Fix potential hang in https handshake
