That is unfortunate, using hard,intr things almost always recover automatically.
The only case I have ever had to automatically umount/remount nfs filesystems
was when (for an unknown reason) that the mount went stale or got a certain
class of really weird error (both detectable from messages in the messages)
every so often on some of the many machines there were using it.
