wvdial "Dial Timeout" patch
Added with modification to devel branch of Fedora, I will not backport this
patch to previous Fedora releases. Option Dial Timeout added in
wvdial-1_60-2_fc9 , closing RAWHIDE. If you really feel that this patch is
necessary to be backported, please reopen this FutureFeature request.
