[lldb-dev] lldb hangs during reverse-connect if lldb-server dies

How about calling select() before accept() with a 5 second timeout. If we
get a timeout, clean up and return an error. If we don't get a timeout,
there's activity on the socket, so the normal path would handle any issues.

We should implement a timeout of say 5 seconds (since this is a locally
spawned lldb-server) and also watch for the spawned lldb-server process to
be reaped. If the lldb-server gets reaped we need to cancel. Don't do any
fancy thread canceling (no pthread_cancel or anything like that) if you do
fix this, just have something locally connect to the socket and allow the
accept thread to exit normally.

back to lldb. lldb with then join with the listen thread. The listen thread
calls accept() to wait for the server to connect back to it.

Set LLDB_DEBUGSERVER_PATH to something else, say /bin/ls. This will finish
and never connect back to lldb.
