How to set an IBM LTO4/5 drives encryption timeouts on Belisarius cards.

Some accounts may required an extended transaction timeout for a drive to get a key if drives are accessing remote KMA's on the network.
This setting should be increased to 60 seconds for most encryption customers using EMC's RKM solution and not Oracle OKM.
