SUNRPC: Allow RPC calls to return ETIMEDOUT instead of EIO
On occasion, it is useful for the NFS layer to distinguish between soft timeouts and other EIO errors due to (say) encoding errors, or authentication errors. The following patch ensures that the default behaviour of the RPC layer remains to return EIO on soft timeouts (until we have audited all the callers).
