ecore_con/efl_net - dedicated threads for network i/o not from the pool
so ecore_con/efl_net were using the standard ecore_thread thread pool for doing things like dns lookups (that can take multiple minutes until timeouts) and actual http transactions. similarly they can block thread workers for long periods or indefinitely thus basically blocking the whole eocre_thread pool and stopping others from sharing it. the best solution we have right now is to bypass the thread pool queue and have dedicated threads for these actions. what we should have is a dedicated thread pool with each thread taking on N connections (via select etc.) and the ability to create and destroy thread pools for specific tasks so you can separate the work out from other work. but that is basically a redesign of our thread pool infra so let's do the quick solution here until that day comes. this partially addresses D4640 a dedicated thread per image load though is going to be a lot nastier...
