Backport of applicable parts of #6441 cb6f839, in a backwards compatible way.

Previously, ConnectionPool uses connection spec key 'wait_timeout' (default 5 seconds) to decide how long a thread can block waiting for a connection to be avail before raising.

However, mysql2 adapter uses this same 'wait_timeout' key for an entirely different value -- setting the MySQL server's own 'wait timeout', how long the server will allow a connection to be idle before closing it. Default is several hours.

Extreme differences in default shows you often do not want these two values to be the same. But if you don't want them to be default, there is no supported API to change one without changing the other to be the same, since they both use 'wait_timeout'.

So this change maeks ConnectionPool use checkout_timeout in the spec, prefering it over wait_timeout. But wait_timeout IS (unlike in master) still used if there without checkout_timeout. If you want mysql2's wait_timeout to be differnet than ConnectionPool's timeout, you can (and have to) set them both -- mysql2 will use the wait_timeout, ConnectionPool will use the checkout_timeout. But prior to this patch there was no way to do that.

The actual code change is very straightforward. But I wasn't sure how to write the test. The test is a bit wonky, if someone has a suggestion of how to organize the test better, please do share. @rafaelfranca , any interest/feedback?

This no longer merges cleanly, and will need a rebase.

@jrochkind

had some trouble figuring out how to get this properly rebased, but I think I've done it right. thanks @steveklabnik

You have! :D

@jrochkind

so, um, what would it take to get this merged into 3-2-stable (or feedback given on why it's not suitable for such)? Anything I can do?

Needs someone from Rails Core to review. I'm not allowed to use my merge privledges.

I'd bet either @tenderlove or @jonleighton would be good people here.

@rafaelfranca

It seems fine to me. I just want to know if @tenderlove have something against this change.

We will need a CHANGELOG entry

I'll merge it as soon you add a CHANGELOG.

@jrochkind jrochkind ConnectionPool accepts spec key 'checkout_timeout'
Backport of #6441 cb6f839 . Old 'wait_timeout' is still supported,
but conflicts with mysql2 using that spec key for different thing.
'checkout_timeout' can now be used taking precedence for ConnectionPool
over 'wait_timeout'.
