Ok, since the packetized pipe approach makes the "compat" games in
autofs unnecessary (autofs can just always do the bigger write), I
have now reverted the commit that started this issue in my tree (and
marked it for stable). So automount should work again.

However, I would still like to know if systemd works with the attached
patch (it's pretty much the same patch as before, but the revert made
for some changes in the autofs code).

Thomas?
