If a soft NFSv4 request is sent, then we don't need it to time out unless
the connection breaks. The reason is that as long as the connection is
unbroken, the protocol states that the server is not allowed to drop the
request.  IOW: as long as the connection remains unbroken, the client may
assume that all transmitted RPC requests are being processed by the server,
and that retransmissions and timeouts of those requests are unwarranted.
