Right, I did mean to reply to this mail but have been distracted by
I don't know what CRIU is and people looking at changelog entries
shouldn't need to do a web search to find out.
Could you change it a little.
I'm also not sure whether to forward this (assuming the description is
updated a little) to Al or to include it in the series to rename
autofs4 to autofs that I'm hoping to ask be included in linux-next
Passing it on to Al will likely interfere with the series coming from
linux-next so that could be bit of a hassle.
Another thing I'm wondering about is the order this entry will appear
at in the options. You order choice is sensible though and autofs
shouldn't have a problem with the inserted option but other
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I don't get what your trying to
do, you also haven't given any clues to that in the patch dscription.
IOW how do you expect to use this.

Like I said what does this mean.
autofs doesn't need this when it re-constructs a mount tree from
existing mounts on re-start or after a SIGKILL on the automount
How is this different and how will it be used?
The question to be answered here is "is this the best way to do it and
will it work for the autofs mount types you expect it to"?
