    As noted in the cosa case the code predated configurable HZ so the
    30 was definitely assuming HZ=100 and therefor it should probably be 300
    now - I do not think that is inconsisten and it was explained in the
    patch. I only can make the HZ=100 assumption if the code predates
    configurable HZ otherwise I leave it at the nominal value and put a note
    in that it may be a significant change and needs review.

    What alternative would you suggest ?

    for the dscc4 case Im not sure - that seems to have gone in in 2.4
    and that had HZ configurable. The cosa case was checked
    again 2.2.26 (no config HZ) and the timeout there was 30 -> 300ms.

    I think that this is consistent with respect to the limited available
    information of the timeout unit in the code.
