Indeed, we have some well-known deadlock issues existed there.
And once there is deadlock case, this patch is helpful to the user experience,
because 20s is pointless for those deadlock case.

Also even adjusting the 20s to 2s, we still can get to know the process stack who rejecting the freezing,
so this freezing configuration is really helpful to avoid 20s waiting for that deadlock case.
Alan and Rafael, could you consider this patch? Thanks.
