This patch adds the buffer local variable 'python-eldoc-get-doc which is
intially set to t but if eldoc takes longer than one second to fetch the
documentation then it will be set to nil. With the variable being nil,
eldoc will no longer try to automatically fetch the documentation. The
documentation can still be fetched with "C-cC-f". This avoids removing
global-eldoc mode and allows the user to manually fetch the
documentation while disabling the automatic fetching which causes the
unexpected freezing. If the user calls eldoc themselves then it can
still freeze but then thats their fault and they can press "C-g" to send
a keyboard interupt to their process. At least it won't freeze
