That sounds good. I have not used this prop in the DTS as it does not
make much sense for an eval board. The target is production boards.

An order of magnitude is a few transfers every 15ms. It means a timeout
of 15ms divided by "a few". I don't have more precise values, but I
could if you consider it useful.

I've done some testing at 50~100µs timeouts and it works as expected. At
those values timerslack is important to consider (default of 50µs).
This is at 400kHz clock frequency. Keep in mind the controllers support
up to 3.4MHz (not yet upstreamed) so timeouts could in theory go
lower if required by the usecase.

My upcoming question is how to move forward on this series. I can do the
patch to i2c_parse_fw_timings() in the next revision. That way it gets
added alongside the first user of this feature. Would it work for you?
