aoe: allow user to disable target failure timeout
With this change, the aoe driver treats the value zero as special for the aoe_deadsecs module parameter. Normally, this value specifies the number of seconds during which the driver will continue to attempt retransmits to an unresponsive AoE target. After aoe_deadsecs has elapsed, the aoe driver marks the aoe device as "down" and fails all I/O. The new meaning of an aoe_deadsecs of zero is for the driver to retransmit commands indefinitely.
