- To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be

+ This module is in the process of being renamed from autofs4 to

+ The autofs4 module is now built from the source located in
+ fs/autofs. The autofs4 directory and its configuration entry
+ will be removed two kernel versions from the inclusion of this
+ change.
+ Changes that will need to be made should be limited to:
+ - source include statments should be changed from autofs_fs4.h to
+ autofs_fs.h since these two header files have been merged.
+ - user space scripts that manually load autofs4.ko should be
+ changed to load autofs.ko. But since the module directory name
+ and the module name are the same as the file system name there
+ is no need to manually load module.
+ - any "alias autofs autofs4" will need to be removed.
+ Please configure AUTOFS_FS instead of AUTOFS4_FS from now on.
