[bitbake-devel] [PATCH 3/3] main: Alter EOFError handling

If the server shuts down 'cleanly' due to some issue, the socket will close.
A recently reported example was an invalid PRSERV being set. Doing this silently
and without changing the retries count will case the server startup to loop

Change the code so it triggers the usual retries note messages and times
out eventually pointing the user at the cooker log file.
