The ResourceRequest class
(WebCore/platform/network/ResourceRequestBase.h) has a timeout value
that could be used for that. By default, there no timeout value so the
timeout depends on the network library used. You could try to set a
default timeout in ResourceRequest constructors.
Loading a page involves different loaders that you can find in
WebCore/loader so you may want to see which one is involved and sets
its timeout accordingly. In your case, I would start with the
FrameLoader (maybe try adding a custom timeout in

Hope it helps,
