Ever heard of fsc (FS-Cache), acreg*, acdir*, actimeo options for NFS?

Yes, they are related to cache, and oh, NFS is kernelspace. And yes, 
there are tunable timeout options for NFS as well.

As of timeout options with ext4, or any other local filesystem - if you 
ever used iSCSI, you would also discover that it's recommended to set 
reasonable timeout options there as well, depending on your network 
infrastructure and usage/maintenance patterns. "Incidentally", iSCSI is 
also kernelspace.
