A fix has been proposed by upstream and should be committed shortly.

Turns out we can set a per-session timeout, which we already do (see
#:timeout in ‘open-ssh-session’ in (guix scripts offload)) but
‘ssh_channel_read’ would ignore it and instead pass an infinite timeout
to poll(2):


This issue happens to be fixed in libssh 0.8.x, so I upgraded our libssh
package in commit a8b0556ea1e439c89dc1ba33c8864e8b9b811f08.

(That still doesn’t tell us why our ‘guix offload’ processes would
occasionally be stuck but at least it ensures the build farm keeps
making progress even when that happens.)
