[PATCH] Fix lock timeout values handling in libsvn_ra_serf

I've noticed, that Subversion 1.8.x client can't break lock if it has a
non-infinite timeout (for example, if lock was acquired by non-standard WebDAV
client, like MS Office). The 'svn unlock' fails with following error:
svn: E170003: Server does not support locking features
svn: E125003: Bogus date

I've discovered, that this happens because lock timeout values is parsed
incorrectly in libsvn_ra_serf (while libsvn_ra_neon works correct).

According to section 14.29 of RFC 4918 [1] the value of timeout XML element is
transferred as TimeType (see section 10.7 of the same RFC). Instead of handling
it properly, libsvn_ra_serf tries to parse it like X-SVN-Creation-Date header
(which uses ISO-8601 date format):

if (leaving_state == TIMEOUT)
  if (strcmp(cdata->data, "Infinite") == 0)
    lock_ctx->lock->expiration_date = 0;
                                  cdata->data, lock_ctx->pool));

It seems, that code is just copy-pasted from function handle_lock():

val = serf_bucket_headers_get(headers, SVN_DAV_CREATIONDATE_HEADER);
if (val)
    SVN_ERR(svn_time_from_cstring(&ctx->lock->creation_date, val,

I have attached a patch that fixes this problem. The corresponding code is
taken from libsvn_ra_neon (with little tweaks from me). Log message:
Fix lock timeout value handling in libsvn_ra_serf: parse value in correct way.
