I don't know your environment.

I don't think that using a timeout of more than 10-30s makes sense,
though. The new SBD versions will not become stuck on IO anymore, and if
you have multiple disks, you're protected against one of them being

In summary: set the timeout so that it covers the maximum time you
expect all your disks to be unavailable at once.
