You are right. It doesn't describe the hardware but it needs to be
configurable because it very depends on the peer master's behavior.
If peer master sends a long packet usually, it should have a long
timeout value since a slave receiving operation takes long time,
and it should be adjusted with an optimal value with taking some
experiments to make it not too long. Any suggestion?
