Motivation for this change

This adds an option controlling the maximum runtime duration of backup
jobs in order to prevent silent failures through indefinite hanging.
The service is now put into an explicit failed state if this limit is
exceeded.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

I would rather just add add a serviceConfig option that will be merged into the existing serviceConfig. But you can just use systemd.services.borgbackup-job-xyz.serviceConfig.MaxRuntimeSec.
