In general, for the RPi stuff, if it isn't in the commit messages, it will
be hard to
know why things were added. The datasheets' completeness and availability
in the past has been spotty, and it's entirely possible the code was written
with an old version that indicated a longer timeout.

A bit of digging shows this was moved recently by Kyle, but the original
dates back
to gonzo_at_'s original commit in 2012. I've cc'd Oleksandr to see if he can
recall
why that was added...
