cygrunsrv to have a timeout parameter for service startup

Hi all,

It looks like the cygrunsrv utility hardcodes 30 seconds as a maximal time for a service to start, then bails
out with a failure.

It would be quite useful (in certain situations) to have a command-line parameter (for the -I option)
that can specify a service startup timeout, longer or shorter than the preset default.

Thanks for considering this,
Anton Lavrentiev

P.S. Maybe for the service shutdown as well, separate or the same parameter used.
