[CIFS] cifs: reconnect unresponsive servers
If the server isn't responding to echoes, we don't want to leave tasks hung waiting for it to reply. At that point, we'll want to reconnect so that soft mounts can return an error to userspace quickly. If the client hasn't received a reply after a specified number of echo intervals, assume that the transport is down and attempt to reconnect the socket. The number of echo_intervals to wait before attempting to reconnect is tunable via a module parameter. Setting it to 0, means that the client will never attempt to reconnect. The default is 5.
