SubjectRe: autofs: make the autofsv5 packet file descriptor use a packetized pipe

That looks odd, but safe.

Why does the code make the pipe file descriptor non-blocking, when it
then always reads it using that odd "poll_read()" function that does a
loop with poll() and read(). I guess there is some 1-second timeout

It's a bit odd in other ways too. The "handle_events()" function is
passed the fd, but then it never actually uses it, and uses
'autodir.k_pipe' instead.

So I'm having a bit of trouble following the *logic* to any of that,
but the only reads I found did seem to match the "read whole packet"
model, so it does look ok too.
