Is smartd enabled? Is smartd configured correctly for this disk?
Some smartd actions will take a disk off line for some tests.
When those tests are running other commands to the disk may time out.
Thus the "smartd" daemon could be triggering the dead time.

IMO, smartd is a cool tool.  It does catch lots of disk failures in time
to back up and replace the disk.  It also can do things that are unexpected.
