[Samba] Samba Client <--> Server Timeout

To be honest, I don't really know clientgen.c. I just see there is a
20000ms there. And I try it and see if I am lucky. Obviously, I am not.

My issue is still server side. In case that VFS_CLOSE operation takes
longer time than 20s, Samba server shall loads a new module. I don't want
that happens.
As you have mentioned, probably the client side ran into timeout and opened
a new connection. To prevent this happening, I would think the quick
workaround here would be to increase the timeout value at the client side.
But I don't know how to do it.
