[PATCH] NFS: use a constant value for TCP retransmit timeouts



 Implement a best practice: don't use exponential backoff when computing
 retransmit timeout values on TCP connections, but simply retransmit
 at regular intervals.

 This also fixes a bug introduced when xprt_reset_majortimeo() was added.

 Test-plan:
 Enable RPC debugging and watch timeout behavior on a NFS/TCP mount.
