Subject[RFC PATCH 0/7] autofs4 - rename autofs4 to autofs
From
Date
The autofs4 kernel module provides function for autofs version 3, 4 and
5 and autofs module has long since been removed. Now we're left with a
misnamed module. Appart from the name another problem this presents is
that module autoload doesn't work because of the mismatch of the directory
name and the name of the file system provided by the module.

So autofs4 should be renamed to autofs but I've held back doing it because
of the potential disruption that could occur with a change like this.

The issues are somewhat reduced now because systemd needs the autofs
module at startup and because of the autoload issue it is easier to just
compile the module into the kernel which is what is done in some cases.

The big question for me is whether to leave a build stub in the autofs4
directory along with a warning in Kconfig that the stub will be removed
after two kernel versions or just straight out rename it and be done
with it.

The series here leaves a stub but I'd like comments thoughts on whether
to use the stub or just rename the module?

Ian Kent (7):
autofs4 - coding style fixes
autofs4 - fix string.h include in auto_dev-ioctl.h
autofs4 - move linux/auto_dev-ioctl.h to uapi/linux
autofs - merge auto_fs.h and auto_fs4.h
autofs - use autofs instead of autofs4 everywhere
autofs - rename module autofs4 to autofs
autofs - change CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS to CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS
