Add Net::ReadTimeout to distinguish which operation failed
This patch introduces Net::ReadTimeout as a subclass of Timeout::Error and raises it when a read operation takes too long. Users may use this to distinguish between timeouts for reading and timeouts for connecting to a remote host. For a read timeout the user may wish to retry the operation.

Eric, thank you for reporting this issue.
Your contribution to Ruby is greatly appreciated.
May Ruby be with you.
