[NVME-CLI] NVMe Format Issues - HGST Drives

I tried -t 3600 for an hour, but it hung the couple of systems I tried it  on. What exactly does that timeout do? And is it not in seconds?

Thank you,

Hi Zeta,

a format will probably require a longer timeout than the default 60
seconds, try specfing た --timeout argument with a longer timeout on the
nvme-cli command line.
