Ruby http/xmlrpc server DoS

A bug was found in the way ruby creates its http (and thus xmlrpc)
server.  The server uses blocking sockets, so if it is possible to
send a very large amount of data via the socket, the server will block
other connections resulting in a denial of service.

The original report (and patch) are here:

A reproducer is described here:
