This makes the timeout for "find_multipaths smart" configurable.
If the timeout has a negative value (default), it's applied only
to "known" hardware which is either in the hwtable or in a "device" section in
multipath.conf. For typical non-multipath hardware, which is not in the
hwtable, a short timeout of 1s is used, so that boot delays caused by
pointlessly waiting e.g. for SATA devices will be minimal.

It's expected that a "reasonable" timeout value depends less on the storage
hardware itself but on other properties of the data center such as network
latencies or distances. find_multipaths_timeout is therefore just a "defaults"
section setting.
