Bug #3331: dsynth timeout and limits

Watching dsynth I often see that it wants to limit number of running jobs, but actually it just prevents new jobs starting. Also under huge load like building other packages sitting in swap jobs can timeout.

For example build reaches chromium while building something huge like firefox with almost no free mem. This means extracting chromium we would need to write a lot of data to swap while reading it from disk and other build also will be swapping a lot. For me it can take more then 15 minutes sometimes.

It would be really nice that this timeout could be configurable.

Also on the limits: it's really easy to suspend any job by `kill -17 -JOB_PID`, this will make all process group STOP for now. Later it can be resumed with -19.

Big thanks in advance, hope this can be interesting as an improvement.
