[PATCH] autofs4: need to invalidate children on tree mount expire
I've found a case where invalid dentrys in a mount tree, waiting to be cleaned up by d_invalidate, prevent the expected expire. In this case dentrys created during a lookup for which a mount fails or has no entry in the mount map contribute to the d_count of the parent dentry. These dentrys may not be invalidated prior to comparing the interanl usage count of valid autofs dentrys against the dentry d_count which makes a mount tree appear busy so it doesn't expire.
