Currently there's no way to change 500ms to a different value.  What you can do
is reduce proxy_cache_lock_timeout (5s by default) to make the requests which
wait longer proceed with uncached proxying.  In fact, once this timeout expires,
you will have the last chance to check if the resource is already unlocked.
