For every request we send, whether it is SMB1 or SMB2+, we attempt to
reconnect tcon (cifs_reconnect_tcon or smb2_reconnect) before carrying
out the request.

So, while server->tcpStatus != CifsNeedReconnect, we wait for the
reconnection to succeed on wait_event_interruptible_timeout(). If it
returns, that means that either the condition was evaluated to true, or
timeout elapsed, or it was interrupted by a signal.

Since we're not handling the case where the process woke up due to a
received signal (-ERESTARTSYS), the next call to
wait_event_interruptible_timeout() will _always_ fail and we end up
looping forever inside either cifs_reconnect_tcon() or smb2_reconnect().

Here's an example of how to trigger that:

$ mount.cifs //foo/share /mnt/test -o
username=foo,password=foo,vers=1.0,hard

(break connection to server before executing bellow cmd)
$ stat -f /mnt/test & sleep 140
[1] 2511

$ ps -aux -q 2511
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root      2511  0.0  0.0  12892  1008 pts/0    S    12:24   0:00 stat -f
/mnt/test

$ kill -9 2511

(wait for a while; process is stuck in the kernel)
$ ps -aux -q 2511
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root      2511 83.2  0.0  12892  1008 pts/0    R    12:24  30:01 stat -f
/mnt/test

By using 'hard' mount point means that cifs.ko will keep retrying
indefinitely, however we must allow the process to be killed otherwise
it would hang the system.
