[OpenAFS] Connection timeouts

The "probe interval" in the windows client GUI is set to 30 which may
explain the difference between the Llinux and Windows clients. However
network connections are still lost, so I'll reduce that. 

The windows probe interval needs to have the cell name added to the GUI...

An additional switch added "-getinterval" to print the current interval
would be help.

  NAT UDP Timeouts.  The firewall/NAT gateway loses the UDP mapping
  between the client and the server.. The server can no longer talk
  to the client..  Callbacks fail..  The server marks the client as
  "Bad" because it can't talk back to the client.

It's not widely known, but the workaround for clients with poor network
connections is "fs checks -interval 30".
