Enforce a minimum SG_IO timeout

There's no point in having too short SG_IO timeouts, since if the
command does end up timing out, we'll end up through the reset sequence
that is several seconds long in order to abort the command that timed
out.

As a result, shorter timeouts than a few seconds simply do not make
sense, as the recovery would be longer than the timeout itself.

Add a BLK_MIN_SG_TIMEOUT to match the existign BLK_DEFAULT_SG_TIMEOUT.
