[Piuparts-devel] Bug#654423: piuparts should time out (instead of piuparts-slave)

Package: piuparts
Version: 0.42
Severity: normal

piuparts 0.42 added the following change:

  [ Scott Schaefer ]
  * piuparts-slave.py:
    - Kill children (hard-coded value, 45 minutes) to ensure test doesn't
      run "forever" (Closes: #640647, #387428)

This should better be done directly in piuparts.py, as it would allow to
do proper cleanup (umount && rm tmpdir) afterwards.

The timeout could be configurable via command line and be applied either
globally or for each command that gets run.
