longer and unreliable. The 4-second maximum delay is still not
sufficient. So, to have some margin, I should probably set a
10-second delay. But this means that in the current situation,
the boot time will always be 10 seconds longer when no Ethernet
cable is plugged in, and for a laptop, this happens quite often.
