Description:
------------
As tzset functions is not async-signal-safe, nor safe to be longjmp'ed out, If a timeout occurs during soem glib call, with a lock set, the PHP script will hangs.


tzset should not be called during timeout management.


Attached patch solves this.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
ini_set('max_execution_time', '1');
echo "Playing with env. and tzset";
$tabs = timezone_identifiers_list();

while (true) {
	foreach ($tabs as $tab) {
		putenv("TZ=$tab");
	}
	echo ".";
}


Must be run various time to reproduce


Expected result:
----------------
Script output "PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 1 second exceeded in..." and exit.


Actual result:
--------------
Script hangs after "PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 1 second exceeded in..."

It seems this is fixed in 5.5, but not in 5.4.

If this hasn't been fixed by something else already, this problem should definitely be resolved in PHP 7.1, as PHP will no longer interrupt internal function calls on timeout.
