Yeah, we just had a similar discussion recently about the Pinephone.
I think we keep the default of 2 seconds for the mainline defconfig, by
not having any explicit entry in that file, so it reverts to the
platform default.
People can always change this in their .config, even with automated
build systems, by using a simple sed command.
