Comment (by karsten):

 I'm moving mikeperry's `DROPTIMEOUTS` feature branch from #33399 here,
 because this ticket is about circuit build timeouts whereas #33399 is
 about static guards.

 It's possible that we'll want to do both (use static guards ''and'' drop
 build timeouts when dropping guards), but the development effort can
 happen in separate tickets.

 mikeperry added a bit later:

 > I just noticed that DROPGUARDS has a call to or_state_mark_dirty()
 buried deep in its callpath. I did not do this for DROPTIMEOUTS, but it is
 easy enough to throw a call in there.
 > This should only matter if there is a risk of restarting or SIGHUPing
 the tor process right after DROPTIMEOUTS. The CBT code will mark the state
 file dirty again as soon as it records 10 circuit build times.

 I'll also add that we'll need a Stem patch in order to send the
 `DROPTIMEOUTS` command. We can add that later after adding the Tor patch
 and after being sure that it does what we need.
