By testing different values and taking the smallest one that did not
have any problems into use.. One second is horribly long time to busy
wait in hardware interrupt handler. Of course it should not really
happen since that timeout is such an additional verification for making
sure that there will not be infinite loops on hardware errors. Anyway, I
increased this value for the next version since apparently the
previously used timeout is not enough in some hardware configurations.
