Between rc8-mm2 and 2.6.23-mm1, autofs stopped working in the
-mm kernel.

Instead of mounting my home directory, I get these messages in

65 in cache.c

I am not sure if this is due to autofs changes or changes in some other
code that was merged. If you can think of any suspicious change that
I should test, please let me know.
