It looks fine, but the option I fancy is to set boot_script_timeout default
value to CYGNUM_REDBOOT_BOOT_SCRIPT_DEFAULT_VALUE
and to set script_timeout to boot_script_timeout value regardless of
value - so the default boot script can be aborted by setting
boot_script_timeout to 0.
Also to make this work boot_script_timeout option has to be always
default boot script is set.
