--- Comment #1 from Eirik Oeverby <ltning-freebsd@anduin.net> ---

I'm the original author of this script. Timeout is used there in order to no
lock up the boot if key loading is held up by a request for keyboard input or
some other unexpected reason.

Possible solutions I can think of include
- check existence of /usr/sbin/timeout and use it only if found
- assume zfs load-key will always return on its own (don't use timeout at all)

Wihout knowing all possible use cases (as I obviously did not, sorry!) I'm not
sure what the better way forward is.

Would you have an opinion on this?
