As everyone is suddenly going to be hit with this for a new kernel
upate, you might want to put something in here that says:
	The default value Linux has always had is 2 seconds.  Change
	this value if you want a different delay timeframe and can not
	modify the command line or module parameter option.

to make people a lot more comfortable with this change.
