[SCSI] scsi/block: increase flush/sync timeout

We have been seeing the flush request timeout with a wide
range of hardware from tgt+iser to FC targets from a major vendor.

After discussions about if the value should be configurable and
what the best value should be, this patch just increases the flush/sync
cache timeout to 1 minute. 2 minutes was determined to be too long, and
making it configurable was troublesome for users.

This patch was made over Linus's tree. It is not made over scsi-misc
or scsi-rc-fixes, because Linus's had block layer changes that my
patch was built over.
