Subject[PATCH 1/6] Add a dentry op to handle automounting rather than abusing follow_link() [ver #2]
Date

Here's an updated patch that:

(1) Fixes a bug in error handling (needs to use path_put_conditional not
path_put).

(2) Absorbs autofs4's decisions about whether to automount or not. This
means that colour-ls won't cause automounts unless -L is supplied or it
doesn't get a DT_DIR flag from getdents(). It also means that autofs4
can dispense with this logic should it choose to use d_automount().

(3) Moves all the automounter logic out of __follow_mount() into
follow_automount().

(4) Stops pathwalk at the automount point and returns that point in the fs
tree if it decides not to automount rather than reporting ELOOP (see its
use of EXDEV for this).

Subject: [PATCH] Add a dentry op to handle automounting rather than abusing follow_link()
Add a dentry op (d_automount) to handle automounting directories rather than
abusing the follow_link() inode operation. The operation is keyed off a new
inode flag (S_AUTOMOUNT).

This makes it easier to add an AT_ flag to suppress terminal segment automount
during pathwalk. It should also remove the need for the kludge code in the
pathwalk algorithm to handle directories with follow_link() semantics.

I've only changed __follow_mount() to handle automount points, but it might be
necessary to change follow_mount() too. The latter is only used from
follow_dotdot(), but any automounts on ".." should be pinned whilst we're using
a child of it.

I've also extracted the mount/don't-mount logic from autofs4 and included it
here. It makes the mount go ahead anyway if someone calls open() or creat(),
tries to traverse the directory, tries to chdir/chroot/etc. into the directory,
or sticks a '/' on the end of the pathname. If they do a stat(), however,
they'll only trigger the automount if they didn't also say O_NOFOLLOW.
