xen: wait up to 5 minutes for device connetion
Paolo Bonzini [Wed, 8 Jul 2009 10:27:39 +0000 (12:27 +0200)]
Increases the device timeout from 10s to 5 minutes, giving the user a
visual indication during that time in case there are problems.  The patch
is a backport of changesets 144 and 150 in the Xenbits tree.
