Description

Making this a separate issue from #17837

Eregon (Benoit Daloze) wrote in https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/17837#note-10 (which is about timeouts for regular expressions):

I think fixing Timeout.timeout might be possible.
The main/major issue is it can trigger within ensure, right? Is there anything else?
We could automatically mask Thread#raise within ensure so it only happens after the ensure body completes.
And we could still have a larger "hard timeout" if an ensure takes way too long (shouldn't happen, but one cannot be sure).
I recall discussing this with @schneems (Richard Schneeman) some time ago on Twitter.
