[ Upstream commit 09252177d5f924f404551b4b4eded5daa7f04a3a ]

Currently if a major timeout value is reached, but the minor value has
not been reached, an ETIMEOUT will not be sent back to the caller.
This can occur if the v4 server is not responding to requests and
retrans is configured larger than the default of two.

For example, A TCP mount with a configured timeout value of 50 and a
retransmission count of 3 to a v4 server which is not responding:

1. Initial value and increment set to 5s, maxval set to 20s, retries at 3
2. Major timeout is set to 20s, minor timeout set to 5s initially
3. xport_adjust_timeout() is called after 5s, retry with 10s timeout,
minor timeout is bumped to 10s
4. And again after another 10s, 15s total time with minor timeout set
to 15s
5. After 20s total time xport_adjust_timeout is called as major timeout is
reached, but skipped because the minor timeout is not reached
- After this time the cpu spins continually calling
xport_adjust_timeout() and returning 0 for 10 seconds.
As seen on perf sched:
39243.913182 [0005] mount.nfs[3794] 4607.938 0.017 9746.863
6. This continues until the 15s minor timeout condition is reached (in
this case for 10 seconds). After which the ETIMEOUT is processed
back to the caller, the cpu spinning stops, and normal operations
