Actually it should be POLLING_TIME as defined in libavformat/network.h for 
blocking mode if you want behaviour to be consistent with other protocols. 
The function cannot block indefinitely even in blocking mode to be able 
allow generic code in libavformat/avio.c:retry_transfer_wrapper to abort a 
blocking wait.

Other protocols are directly using poll/select to wait for data with 
POLLING_TIME timeout, but since librist does not provide a way to poll for 
data, this is the best we can do (and return EAGAIN even in blocking mode 
if the POLLING_TIME elapses, because retry_transfer_wrapper will retry in 
that case anyway)
