its so called "LMP (link manager protocol) response timeout". its
defined in link manager, i.e. part of the device's firmware. v1.1 spec
seems to be implying that LMP response timeout should be set to 30

i'm afraid that you can not change LMP response timeout. there isn't
any defined command that would do that. i'm not sure why do you care
much about pin length. pin is only used once to generate link key and
as soon as link key is generated both devices should use it instead of
