Subject: kfence: maximize allocation wait timeout duration

The allocation wait timeout was initially added because of warnings due to
CONFIG_DETECT_HUNG_TASK=y [1].  While the 1 sec timeout is sufficient to
resolve the warnings (given the hung task timeout must be 1 sec or larger)
it may cause unnecessary wake-ups if the system is idle.  [1]
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/CADYN=9J0DQhizAGB0-jz4HOBBh+05kMBXb4c0cXMS7Qi5NAJiw@mail.gmail.com

Fix it by computing the timeout duration in terms of the current
sysctl_hung_task_timeout_secs value.
