Neon support was removed with SVN 1.8. You are stuck on SVN 1.7 or earlier
for your clients. I am sure the Apache Serf project would welcome
contributions of PKCS11 support for Linux. If this is important to the DoD
... contribute resources. It is not like the average open source developer
has access to a CAC environment to work on something like this.

There is no reason to believe that a newer client version will make any
difference for a problem like this. The version of Subversion on the
server is not the most likely reason for timeouts.
