PROMPT forces entering the boot prompt without expecting any prior
key-presses. Unattended reboots are impossible if PROMPT is set and
TIMEOUT=<tsecs> sets a timeout (in tenths of a second) for keyboard
input. If no key is pressed for the specified time, the first image is
automatically booted. Similarly, password input is aborted if the user
is idle for too long. The default timeout is infinite.
