autofs4: add miscellaneous device for ioctls
Add a miscellaneous device to the autofs4 module for routing ioctls. This provides the ability to obtain an ioctl file handle for an autofs mount point that is possibly covered by another mount. The actual problem with autofs is that it can't reconnect to existing mounts. Immediately one things of just adding the ability to remount autofs file systems would solve it, but alas, that can't work. This is because autofs direct mounts and the implementation of "on demand mount and expire" of nested mount trees have the file system mounted on top of the mount trigger dentry. To resolve this a miscellaneous device node for routing ioctl commands to these mount points has been implemented in the autofs4 kernel module and a library added to autofs. This provides the ability to open a file descriptor for these over mounted autofs mount points. Please refer to Documentation/filesystems/autofs4-mount-control.txt for a discussion of the problem, implementation alternatives considered and a description of the interface.
