This looks good. Some high level comments (because I don't actually
know much about http requests).

Why have MAXTIME default to LONG_MAX? Which is long, but different on
different arches 32/64bit. If MAXSIZE == 0 means infinite, why not make
 MAXTIME=0 the same for consistency?

An alternative of passing around the X-DEBUGINFOD-MAXSIZE header is
doing it all at the client side if we supported HEAD. See PR27277. Did
you consider that route?

The bug suggests to also check the Content-Length header on reciept (in
case the server didn't support or respect the X-DEBUGINFOD-MAXSIZE
header. Did you try to implement that?

I believe various error handling goto out1 should be goto out2 (after
your duplicate urls patch). Could you double check that?

I had to make this little tweak to make the testcase pass on my setup
(because PWD contains symlinks):
