> I resurect and refreshed this old patch from
> https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2007-February/003726.html
> This patch makes automount to work within a container.
> Make autofs4 container-friendly by caching struct pid reference rather
> than pid_t and using pid_nr() to retreive a task's pid_t.
> ChangeLog:
> V1:
> 	- fixed pgrp option in parse_options
> 	- used get_task_pid(current, PIDTYPE_PGID) instead of task_pgrp
> 	- fixed how is passed the 'pgrp' argument autofs4_fill_super
> 	- fixed bad pid conversion, was pid_vnr not pid_nr in autofs4_wait
> V0:
> 	- Refreshed against linux-next (added dev-ioctl.c)
> 	- Fix Eric Biederman's comments - Use find_get_pid() to hold a
> 	  reference to oz_pgrp and release while unmounting; separate out
> 	  changes to autofs and autofs4.
> 	- Also rollback my earlier change to autofs_wait_queue (pid and tgid
> 	  in the wait queue are just used to write to a userspace daemon's
> 	  pipe).
>         - Fix Cedric's comments: retain old prototype of parse_options()
>           and move necessary change to its caller.
