parentautofs4: check kernel communication pipe is valid for write (diff)
autofs4: fix waitq memory leak
If an autofs mount becomes catatonic before autofs4_wait_release() is called the wait queue counter will not be decremented down to zero and the entry will never be freed. There are also races decrementing the wait counter in the wait release function. To deal with this the counter needs to be updated while holding the wait queue mutex and waiters need to be woken up unconditionally when the wait is removed from the queue to ensure we eventually free the wait.
