I guess it looks ok as a quick fix for the issue at hand but:
- should we check for more error codes (use is_retryable_error()?)
- all syscalls will need something similar, the session can be closed at
  any point
  * either we add a loop everywhere
  * or we change cifs_send_receive to retry (most?) calls
  * might be worth looking at what nfs does here
- Should this be done for both soft (default) and hard mounts? I guess
  for hard we would retry indefinitely

Cheers,
