+ help
+ This option controls the default timeout (in seconds) used
+ to determine when a task has become non-responsive and should
+ be considered hung.
+ It can be adjusted at runtime via the kernel.hung_task_timeout
+ sysctl or by writing a value to /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout.
+ A timeout of 0 disables the check. The default is two minutes.
+ Keeping the default should be fine in most cases.
