Subject:  [PATCH v2] Introduce a version6 of autofs interface, to fix design error.
Date:  Thu, 26 Apr 2012 17:34:49 +0400

This patch introduces a new autofs interface version, v6, which
is exactly the same as v5 but uses better defined packet structure
which does not change between architectures or platform bitness.
Old interface is supported still.
