    And I recently found out the hard way that wasn't enough, and ended up
    cludging a utility to patch a running kernel (don't ask) to increase that
    timeout. Turned out the drive needed a little over three hours to tell me
    it couldn't format.

    Frankly, format should really have NO timeout. Or possibly a user-
    specified one.
