RE: cygrunsrv to have a timeout parameter for service startup

I don't think there is a hard-coded system timeout, as long as the starting service keeps
posting its START_PENDING status, the service controller will wait.
And cygrunsrv seems to be doing that already.

MSDN doc says exactly that.  And I've also seen some articles that tell the same.
